ABOUT Bahu Fort
Bahu Fort is an ancient fort is believed to have been built by Raja Bahulochan, about 3000 years ago and later refurbished by kings of the Dogra Dynasty in the 19th century. The fort is believed to be one of the oldest standing buildings in Jammu with an interesting story behind it. It is believed that Raja Jambu Lochan, brother to Raja Bahulochan and the king credited with establishing the city, saw a curious sight of a tiger and goat drinking water from the Tawi river, without the tiger attacking the meek goat. He saw this as a divine sign, one that spelt peaceful coexistence, and decided to establish the city of Jammu here.

The fort now also houses a Mahakali Temple (aka Bave Waali Mata) within its premises, in favour of the deity who is believed to preside over the region. The aquarium in the garden, the Bagh-i-Bahu, of the fort is one of the subcontinent’s largest underground aquarium, housing over 400 varieties of fresh and marine water fish - all maintained in a state-of-the-art shape. An obvious delight for children, adults too love to revive their childhood memories here, especially with the fish-shaped, magnificent entrance to the complex!
