About Peer Kho Cave Temple

Located in Shalimar Road, the Ranbireshwar Temple of Jammu is dedicated to the almighty Shiva. Maharaja Ranbir Singh built this ancient shrine in 1883 and you can spot his gigantic statue in the temple premises. It is now one of the prime attractions of the city. Situated on an elevated platform, this magnificent temple is manned by Jammu and Kashmir Trust Council. The temple houses the biggest lingam in India, which is of a massive height of eight feet. It is located centrally and is made of black granite stone. Apart from this, the Ranbireshwar Temple also enshrines twelve crystal shivlings measuring 15cm to 38cm in height. These encircle the mammoth black lingam. The temple walls bear marble images of Lord Shiva and Jagdamba Mata Parvati. The galleries of the temple are so beautiful, you will actually have to stare deep to take in all the beauty for they are adorned by thousands of Saligrams which are religious fossilized shells and an iconic symbol of divinity. As if this embellishment wasn’t enough, the temple passage is lined by more that quarter of a lakh small ‘bona lingams’ that have been sourced from the Narmada River. The main entrance holds massive images of Lord Ganesh and Kartikeya. Thousands of people throng the sanctum-sanctorum during the festivals of Maha Shivratri and Raksha bandan to pay obeisance to Lord Shiva.

Historical Context: This temple is also dedicated to Lord Shiva and is situated near river tawai
