About Ranbireshwar Temple

Located on 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 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, one of a height of eight feet. It is located centrally and is made of black granite stone. Apart from this, the 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 stare deep, for they are adorned by thousands of Saligrams which are fossilized religious shells. 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.

Historical Context: This temple is dedicated to Lord Shiva
