About Bawey Wali Mata Temple

Located in Gorkhanagar of Jammu, Bahu Fort is a 3000 year old fort and houses a temple of Goddess Kali inside its premises. Both the fort and the temple were constructed by Maharaja Gulab Singh in 1822. Goddess Kali is an incarnation of Hindu Goddess Durga and is highly revered by pilgrims who jostle at one other just to visit this shrine. She is considered second only to Mata Vaishno Devi. The atmosphere around the temple is typical Kashmir- breathtakingly gorgeous with mountains and green landscapes in the view. Inside the temple there is a big idol of Goddess Kali. Kali is derived from a Sanskrit word meaning “kala’ or time. She is representative of time, change, power and destruction. Sundays and Tuesday are the days when this temple is most thronged by locals and devotees as these days are considered most auspicious for seeking Kali’s blessings. Elaborate aartis are chanted to honor the goddess. Not very far from the Bawey wali mata temple is a small hillock beside the Tawi River. You may go there for some clicks or for a stroll. After seeking the goddess’ blessing you may further visit the architecturally rich Bahu Fort or the famous garden of Bagh-e-Bahu adjacent to it.

Historical Context: This temple is located in Bahu-Fort,dedicated to Goddess Kali.The fort is 3000 years old and was constructed by King Bahu Lochan.
