About Bahu Fort in Jammu

The history of Bahu Fort is as old as the history of the Jammu city. Bahu Fort, Jammu, is one of the most beautiful historical places situated on the banks of the Tawi river. The architectural style of the fort is influenced by Mughal architectural style. Sandstones and brinks are the backbones of this marvelous fort. The fort is also one of the most visited structures situated in Jammu district. It is situated at a distance of 4.1 km from the Jammu Tawi Railway and only 5 km away from the city center.

History of Bahu Fort

The history of Bahu Fort dates back to over 3000 years back when it was established by Raja Bahucholan. Later, renovations were made during the Dogra dynasty. The city is known to be named after the then king of the Dogra Dynasty, Raja Jambu Lochan. As per legends, Raja Jambu Lochan appeared at this place while hunting and got awe-struck by the beauty of the place. Years later, his brother Raja Bahucholan established the fort. The fort was rebuilt again in the year 1585. The present structure of the fort was built by Maharaja Gulab Singh.

Bahu Mela

Bahu Mela is one of the most vibrantly celebrated festivals in Jammu. Bahu Fort is the place where this festival is hosted. Best of all, it is celebrated twice in a year, i.e., during the months of March and April and September and October. Bahu Mela takes place during Navratri.

    The trip was really comfortable and amazing. Special thanks to our guide Nazir Baya who assisted us in local guidance and was very polite. He was well versed with all the places and was very helpful in providing the best possible options. Also, Thanks to Rabia for providing us with the best faciliti
    es and being there for queries at any point in time. Would recommend Rabia and Nazir for future travels.

    A's 6 days trip to Jammu

    Pros - Ms. Meherin was very supportive while booking and guidance and also take feedback between the trips. - They also arrange the sim as our sim was not working there. - They also provided a good driver(Mr.Sahid ) who also guide us to every place. (Extra one star for him :) ) Cons - Complimentary
    shikara ride is of no use, just a time wastage. He takes us to the Meena bazaar only and drop to our houseboat. He was also rude as we didn't agree on his quoted price. For a proper round, he asked for an extra 4500. Once we reached the houseboat, we booked another one at 800rs only. So be alert while paying to them. - We faced multiple problems with hotels. Be careful while selecting the recommended hotels. - first Pahalgam hotel (very bad experience) - Phalgam Retreat Detailed Review - https://goo.gl/maps/kTerk4d37xR4Szsj9 - second Srinagar hotel - Hotel Aqeeq Towers - Average Experience Detailed Review - https://goo.gl/maps/6Gkvpp1PMK4avrHE9 - third houseboat - Anarkali - Good Experience > Houseboat staff is very supportive. >Houseboat is well maintained and you will enjoy your stay there. > They also provide an electric blanket. Just recommendation is to opt only for a day in winter to get the experience as it's too cold there. Please avoid recommending the above hotels. These hotels are not good except houseboat.

    Anil's 3 days trip to Jammu

    Good experience. But It could have been best if the package involved competitive charges for local side seeing, specially the charges for pony and shikara, as that has involved lot of head ache and unplanned expense from the local venders. They charge like anything which is quite frustrating. As we
    are in mood of travel, explore and enjoy and not in the mood of bargaining to get the best deal with pony owners. Accommodation were quite superb at House boat and hospitality was amazing. But the accommodation at Pahalgam was poor as the hotel people straight away denied that they were not been communicated about our stay. We reached to pahalgam after a lot travel and such reception is not expected which again lead to dissatisfaction. It took almost 45 minutes to resolved the issue and even after that we got poorer property to stay not as was promised.

    Sachitamallick's 7 days trip to Jammu

    Our 6N 7D trip to Kashmir was planned by Ms Rabia from classic holidays through travel triangle. It was very well planned by her according to our needs be it the hotel stay or the house boat or else the visiting spots. In Srinagar we stayed in Grand Kaiser hotel & Wangnoo Sheraton houseboat. Both w
    ere 4 star hotels. Experience at both the places was good. In hotel after having dinner we enjoyed bonfire every night till our stay. In houseboat the food served was authentic. Caretakers were very nice in every aspect. In Pahalgam our stay was planned for 2 nights. we stayed in AS resorts which was not even 1 star so Rabia changed it the other day and arranged our stay in grand Kaiser. She cooperated very well. In the itinerary she mentioned about bargaining in sonmarg, Gulmarg n Pahalgam for pony ride which was very much helpful. For shopping and for eating food famous and specific places were mentioned. We tried that only and it was really good and worth it. Will recommend classic holidays to everyone for exploring Kashmir.
