About Bahu Fort

Located about 5 kilometers from the center of Jammu city, is the majestic structure of Bahu Fort. It is a popular stop among tourists. The fort was originally constructed by Raja Bahulochan and later beautified by Dogra Dynasty rulers. That was about 3000 years ago! It is quite an old fort, oldest in Jammu. There is a legend to its construction. It is said that one day when the Raja was on a hunt, he saw an unusual sight- a tiger and a goat were drinking water from the Tawi river without the tiger attacking! Considering it as a divine indication. The Raja then set up his capital along with this fort here. The fort is atop a high plateau land with river Tawi on its left. The architecture of the fort clearly depicts the lavishness of Dogra rulers. Inside the fort is a temple dedicated to Goddess Kali, reigning deity of Jammu and Kashmir. Tuesdays and Sundays are considered auspicious days by pilgrims to pray here. A garden surrounds the Bahu Fort. It is called the Bagh-e-Bahu and is a very well maintained garden featuring pretty flower beds, fountains, and subcontinent’s largest underground aquarium.

Historical Context: Raja Bahulochan built this fort almost 3000 years ago.
