Jammu :

Situated on the banks of the Tawi river against the ravishing backdrop of the majestic Trikuta ranges, the winter capital of the state is Jammu. It is believed that King Jambulochan, considered the place to be auspicious because he saw a tiger and goat drinking water from the same pool. He laid the foundation of a new city, Jammu Nagri. In 1832, Gulab Singh merged Jammu with Kashmir to form the present state.
