Bahu Fort

Bahu is a majestic fort on the left bank of the Tawi River, in Jammu and Kashmir and is 5 km from Jammu.

This imposing structure is the oldest fort in the city and was built about 3000 years ago by Raja Bahulochan. The fort was later renovated by the Dogra rulers.

An extensive terraced garden named Bagh-e-Bahu, built around the fort is a favourite picnic spot of the city folk. It has waterfalls, flowers and big trees and is an ideal place to sit and relax. From the fort one can enjoy sunset and the rare sight of Tawi River changing its colours at dusk.

The ancient Bawey Wali Mata Temple, dedicated to Goddess Kali, is situated inside the fort.
