Krimchi

Krimchi, on the way to Shudh Mahadev, is a site of the three of the oldest temples of Jammu. The architecture of the temples show distinct Greek (Hellenic) influences.

The temples resemble the shape of the Lingaraja temple at Bhubaneswar in Orissa. The main temple is 50ft high, is decorated with abstract designs and the porch strongly resembles the ancient stone temples of Kashmir.

Some beam like stone structures are used in the construction and the rest on massive pillars. Pieces of the sculpture found in the rubble have images of Ganesh, Parvati, Shiva and Vishnu.
