Jammu, Jammu and Kashmir

Today we left the clean crisp and cold mountain air of Dalhousie and descended the mountains of northern Himachal Pradesh entering the plains of Punjab and then into the state of Jammu and Kashmir. Our original plan was to spend the night in Udhampur but decided to cut the driving time a little and instead stop for the night in Jammu. There was very little to see of any significance but we did stop into a small temple within the walls of Bahu Fort. There is a long bazaar that runs along a small road leading to fort/temple. The Hindu temple must be popular at times because there were a lot of vendors selling the same things however it wasn’t crowded when we visited. The primary items for sale were flower garlands and other religious nick knacks used as offerings to the Hindi deities.
