Monuments in Jammu &Kashmir

Apart from its natural beauty the state has a good share of historical and archaeological legacy. These brimming forts and monuments represent the diverse cultural heritage, glorious history and omnipresent element of religion. A number of places built on the soil of Jammu & Kashmir that tell the tale of valiant rulers of the state. Out of many monuments most of them turned to rubble and vanished without traces due the prolonged violence in the state and negligence of the Government. But few of them still remain to tell the story of bravery to the future generation.
