The other major tourist attraction is the Raghunath Temple Complex, which is the largest temple in North India devoted to Lord Rama. Jammu region is abode of gods and goddesses for which it bears the name, 'city of temples'.
The region has broadened the spheres of pilgrimage tourism for entire State. The Valley of Kashmir has been a favorite destination of the travelers from early times.
