Where to stay in Jammu City

Budget-friendly accommodation options lie throughout Jammu City--mostly pilgrim guesthouses with dormitory-style rooms situated near the main train station, around Vinaik Bazaar, and in some of the temple complexes. You can also opt for one of the small but modern mid-range hotels, in close proximity to the riverbank. If visiting in summer, try to book ahead, as the hotels and guesthouses can be full during the holy month of Shraavana.
