It is approximately 600 km away from the national capital, New Delhi and is linked with a National Highway, railway and airport. The airport is situated at Satwari. Jammu city has a station called Jammu tawi which is very well connected with the major cities of India. Jammu city serves as the winter capital of Jammu & Kashmir state from November to April when all the offices move from Srinagar to Jammu.
Jammu is situated on a hillock, on the bank of river Tawi and is bound by Udhampur district. Jammu district derives its name from the city of Jammu which besides being the winter capital of the state, is known as the city of temples. It is believed that the city was originally founded by Raja Jamboo Lochan who lived in fourteenth century B.C. The Raja had gone out one day for hunting when he happened to witness a tiger and a goat drinking water from one and the same pond. This extraordinary phenomenon set him thinking and he decided to build a city at this site so that the strong and weak could live together in peace and mutual tolerance. Eventually, he founded the city which came to be known as "Jamboo" after his own name. With the passage of time and due to its frequent use the pronunciation of the name got slightly distorted and the city, came to be known as 'Jammu' as it is called now.
National Highway 1A which passes through Jammu connects it to the Kashmir valley.
Jammu Airport is located about 8 km from Jammu. It has direct flights to Srinagar, Delhi, Chandigarh, Leh and Mumbai.
