Sarada Mandir- Kashmir Temples-Sharada Mataji (Jammu) The ancient Sharada Mandir, which Adi Sankara visited, is now in Pakistan-occupied Kashmir. This Temple is situated on the banks of Kishanganga river. The people who were displaced from that place after partition of India, have now settled in Bantalab in Jammu. They have built a Temple similar to the one in POK. Sarda Devi is also known here as Goddess Saraswati. From time immemorial, Kashmir is known as Sharadapeeth.
