The cover page of “Shri Raghunath Temple, Jammu”.

NEW DELHI: A book titled “Shri Raghunath Temple, Jammu”, authored by Dr. Kamal Kishore Mishra and documenting the historical background and architecture of the temple, was released by Indian Council for Cultural Relations president Dr. Karan Singh at ICCR auditorium in Azad Bhawan here.

Speaking on the occasion, Dr. Singh said the Raghunath Temple has a unique importance owing to its grandeur and historical background.

“The temple has every devta and devi and is the only one of its kind in North India. I was keen that a book on Raghunath Temple like the one on the Tirupati temple in the South must be brought out. Dr. Mishra has done commendable job in bringing out the book.”

Dr. Mishra said on Dr. Karan Singh's instructions he embarked on the mammoth exercise of undertaking an in-depth research and then writing the book. “As writings on this temple were mostly in Persian, I first got them translated into Hindi by Delhi University's Head of Department Persian Studies Rehana Khatoon. Raghunath Temple has a history behind it.”

The temple represents our composite culture. The labourers who constructed this temple were all Muslims, added Dr. Mishra.
