Bahu Fort is one of the oldest historical landmarks in Jammu city in the Indian state of Jammu and Kashmir. Over 3000 years ago, Raja Bahulochan was started the construction of this temple but was renovated by the Dogra rulers in the 19th century. Dedicated to the Hindu goddess Kali, the presiding deity of Jammu, the temple is known as the "Bave Wali Mata temple". There are various beautiful lawns and gardens which are covered with big trees, flawless fountains and waterfalls, exotic plants and a variety of flowers.

Perched at a height of 325 metres (1,066 ft), this fort is located opposite to the old town of Jammu. This tombstone consists of thick walls built with lime and brick sandstones. There are eight octagonal towers associated by extensive walls. The major archway of this fort is quite wide allowing many elephants entered into it. On the left gate of this fort, a water tank is situated which measures 6.1×6.1 metres (20 ft) in size and has a water depth of 4.6 metres (15 ft).

It attracts a large number of tourists with its special days of worship at the temple. Moreover, some special stalls are opened near the fort in the festival time such as flowers, incense, coconuts, red cloth etc.
