Things to Do in Jammu

  • Surinsar Lake

    Located about 40 kilometres from the main town of Jammu, this lake has a mythological connection with the epic Mahabharata. It is believed that the legendary warrior Arjuna shot an arrow that pierced the Earth at one place and emerged from another. According to folklore, Surinsar Lake is the point from where the arrow came out, creating a serene water body.

    Although visitors are not allowed to swim or boat here, owing to its religious significance, the calming effect of the picturesque environs is nevertheless rewarding. Bird watching is an engaging activity that visitors will be delighted to indulge in. The enchanting flora and fauna around the lake are worth exploring, and memories of the same are sure to remain with visitors for years.

    During the summer season, visitors can find seemingly endless number of lotus flowers blooming on the surface of the lake. Besides, the area around the lake is lined with several restaurants and food joints.
