Kashmir generally goes with Jammu as both of them are inseparable in many aspects. Therefore, Jammu and Kashmir are taken together.

Jammu and Kashmir (Urdu:جموں و کشمیر) is the northernmost state of India. These are situated mostly in the Himalayan mountains. Jammu and Kashmir shares a border with the Indian states of Himachal Pradesh and Punjab to the south, Pakistani administered Azad Kashmir and Northern Areas to the west and the People's Republic of China to the north and east.

This territory is disputed between Pakistan and India. Generally, it is referred to by Pakistan as Indian-occupied Kashmir.

Jammu and Kashmir consists of three divisions: Jammu, the Kashmir valley and Ladakh. The Kashmir valley, often known as paradise on Earth, is famous for its beautiful mountainous landscape. Jammu attracts tens of thousands of Hindu and Muslim pilgrims every year. Ladakh, also known as "Little Tibet", is renowned for its remote mountain beauty and Buddhist culture.

Srinagar is the summer capital, and Jammu is its winter capital.
