Kiramchi near Udhampur is also believed to have been the capital of Bhuti

Kiramchi is also believed to have been the capital of Bhuti, one of the principalities of Jammu region ruled by the successors of King Daya Karan who founded the Bhutial dynasty. The last Bhutial ruler, Himmat Singh, gave up Bhuti to Raja Gulab Singh in 1834 whose descendants ruled Kashmir till India’s independence in 1947.


Drive 60 km from Jammu to Udhampur and look for a crossing calling ‘Supply Chowk’ – turn in and drive 8 km along a winding road till you reach Kiramchi village.
