JAMMU & TAWI SIVA MANDIR

The state Jammu and Tawi has the proud privilege of having one of the biggest Hindu temples of the Akanda Bharat Khand. The Raghunathji Mandir, as said by the
sthalagnas justly occupies the highest place in the temple map of India. It is a veritable Harihara kshetra and from among the evidence available staring into the visitor's eyes, it is extremely difficult to call it a Vaishnavate shrine or Saivate temple. It goes by the sacrosanct name of Raghunathji temple, but by the evidence of the number of Sivalingas installed and adored, it deserves to be named as Siva mandir only. No where in India such infinite number of Sivalingas are housed in one place. Neither the ancient, nor the modern Siva mandir built anywhere on the globe claims that most honoured number of Sivalingas receiving worship. It is said that there are a thousand crore -- Sahasrakoti Sivalingas installed in ten huge halls 
in an odd way. The very number staggers one's imagination and benumbs the senses. By and large, everyone unconditionally pays homage to the builders of this famous Raghunathji mandir, the crest jewel of the state, or to be precise the dazzling diamond in the diadem adorning the Bharatamata.
