Jammu and Kashmir History

Jammu and Kashmir was, from 1846 until 1952, a princely state in the British Empire in India, and was ruled by Jamwal Rajput Dogra Dynasty. The state was created in 1846 after the First Anglo-Sikh War as per the Treaty of Amritsar. The East India Company annexed the Kashmir Valley, Ladakh, and Gilgit-Baltistan from the Sikhs, and then transferred it to Gulab Singh in return for an indemnity payment of 7, 500, 000 Nanakshahee Rupees.
At the time of the Indian independence, Maharaja Hari Singh, the ruler of the state, preferred to become independent and remain neutral between the successor dominions of India or the Pakistan. However, an uprising in the western districts of the State followed by an attack by raiders from the neighbouring Northwest Frontier Province, supported by Pakistan, put an end to his plans for independence. On 26 October 1947, the Maharaja signed the Instrument of Accession joining the Dominion of India with conditions in return for military aid. The western and northern districts presently known as Azad Kashmir and Gilgit-Baltistanpassed to the control of Pakistan.
The Dogra state in Jammu was established by Dhruv Dev during the declining years of the Mughal Empire. Raja Gulab Singh, his direct descendant, was 16 years old when, in 1808, the Sikh Empire under Maharaja Ranjit Singh conquered Jammu. Gulab Singh and his two brothers, Dhyan Singh and Suchet Singh, went on to enrol in the Sikh troops. Gulab Singh soon distinguished himself in battles, and was awarded a Jagir near Jammu and allowed to keep an independent force. After the conquest of Kishtwar (1821) and the subjugation of Rajouri, he was made a hereditary Raja of Jammu in 1822, with an annual allowance of 300, 000 rupees. Ranjit Singh personally anointed him as the Raja. His brother Dhyan Singh received Poonch and Suchet Singh Ramnagar.
By 1827, Gulab Singh brought under his control all the principalities lying between Kashmir and Jammu. Dhyan Singh became the Lord Chamberlain and, later, Prime Minister for Ranjit Singh. Gulab Singh acquired fame in the Sikh court as a warrior and an able manager of the State's affairs.

Motto - Kartavyam Anvatma (Duty Before Death)
War Cry - Jawala Mata Ki Jai (Victory to Goddess Jawala)

The Dogra Regiment is an infantry unit of the Indian Army, formerly the 17th Dogra Regiment when part of the British Indian Army.
The regiment has the Dogra people from the Jammu and Kashmir, Himachal Pradesh and the hill regions of Punjab. The current regiment was formed in 1922 through the amalgamation of three separate regiments of Dogras as the 17th Dogra Regiment. They were:
• 1st Battalion - Formerly the 37th (Prince of Wales's Own) Dogras
• 2nd Battalion - Formerly the 38th Dogras
• 3rd Battalion - Formerly the 1st Battalion, 41st Dogras
• 10th (Training) Battalion - Formerly the 2nd Battalion, 41st Dogras

The 41st Dogras were an infantry regiment of the British Indian Army. It could trace its origins to 1900, when it was raised as the 41st (Dogra) Bengal Infantry. After World War I, the Indian government reformed the army, moving from regiments with a single battalion to multi battalion regiments. It dropped '17th' from its title in 1945 and was allocated to India upon its independence in 1947.

Enlisting in the army is seen as an honourable pursuit for Dogras, with the earnings of the soldiers of the regiment forming a sizeable part of the local economy. The regiment currently has 18 battalions. The 1st Battalion was reroled in 1981 to become the 7th Battalion, Mechanised Infantry Regiment.

Soldiering has not only become a substantial part of the economic structure of the Dogra Hills, but created social and cultural traditions built on the people's association with the army. The regiment has produced one Army Chief, General Nirmal Chander Vij. The General also served as the 10th Colonel-in-Chief of the Dogra Regiment and the Dogra Scouts.

In the pre-Independence era, the Dogras had to their credit three Victoria Crosses and 44 Military Crosses besides 312 other awards. Two battalions of the 17th Dogra Regiment (the 2nd and 3rd), also fought in the Malayan Campaign. After the Fall of Singapore, a large number of the captured troops later went on to join the Indian National Army.

It is located on Circular Road at a distance of about 3.5 km from Jammu’s city centre. Inside the temple is a naturally formed Shivalingam that attracts hordes of devotees. This temple is located on the banks of Tawi River and is surrounded by a beautiful forest.

Dedicated to the lord of destruction Shiva, this cave temple is believed to have gateways to other caves and shrines, some supposedly even outside of India. The cave is made up of igneous rocks which lends a spiritual aura to the shrine and is located about 20 to 30 feet below the ground level. The cause and formation of the Shivalingam that is placed on a white marble slab is shrouded in mystery.

Coiled around the black Shivalingam is a snake made out of copper while the top is plated with silver. The architecture of this temple and paintings inside strongly hint at a Dogra influence characterized by an emphasis on colour blue. The inverted round dome or Gumband is designed like a lotus and decorated with floral motifs and other paintings dating back to Dogra era. The paintings also bear a strong resemblance to 19th century Jammu style of painting. This temple is adorned with arched niches that house beautiful paintings.
Inside Peer Kho temple and at a lower level is Nau Durga shrine. Life-sized idols of Lord Rama, Lord Vishnu, Sita and many other gods and goddesses are placed here. A covered courtyard within the temple leads to Nau Devis Gufa (Cave of the nine Devis). The nine Devis standing majestically on a long platform is indeed a view to behold.

Although the formation of Shivalingam in this cave temple is unexplained, Ramayana and popular folklore are of the belief that this is the place where mighty Jamvant (the bear God) had meditated. The existence of this temple can be traced back to the period of Dogra regime. According to unofficial historical records, it is said that this temple was built by Raja Ajaib Dev in honour of Peer (Saint) Siddha Ghareeb Nath way back in 15th century A.D.
