Jammu has a tradition of tolerance, harmony and respect towards humanity and different faiths. Our ancestors were god fearing, brave and religious minded with benevolent hearts. This was a place where Lion and Goat co-existed which may be a symbolic story but the matter of fact is that people of our region believed in co-existence and respect for others faiths. The State of Jammu & Kashmir is respected and known for its rich culture, natural heritage, art, craft and cuisine from the ancient times. It has become necessary to conserve and project the culture and Heritage of the region in the national as well as in the International Tourism Market which will boost the economy of Jammu region in particular and the State on the whole.
