Introduction

The state of Jammu & Kashmir may be likened to a house with many storeys. The door is at Jammu and the house faces south, looking out on Punjab... There is just a frings of level land along the Punjab frontier, bordered by a plinth of low hilly country sparsly wooded, broken, and irregular. This is known as the Kandi, the home of the Chibs and the Dogras. Then comes the first storey... a temprature country with forests of oak, rhododendron, and chestnut, and higher up of deodar and pine, a country of beautiful uplands, such as Bhadarwah and Kishtwar, drained by the deep gorge of the Chenab river'

India's northernmost state, Jammu & Kashmir, comprises three regions, Jammu, Kashmir and Ladakh, each distinguished by a distinct culture and landscape reflect each other, as soaring temple shikharas echo the beauty of the surrounding Pir Panjal range, suffusing the air with spirituality. Indeed, it is said that the Pir Panjal itself, soaring at an average altitude of 5,000m, was named after a faqir(saint) by that name.
