Most of the land is hilly or mountainous, including the Pir Panjal range which separates it from the Kashmir Valley and part of the Great Himalayas in the eastern districts of Doda and Kishtwar. The principal river is the Chenab. Jammu city, officially called Jammu-Tawi, is the largest city in Jammu and the winter capital of Jammu and Kashmir. Jammu City is also known as 'City of Temples' as it has many temples and shrines, with glittering shikhars soaring into the sky, which dot the citys skyline, creating the ambiance of a holy and peaceful Hindu city.
