He also appreciated the efforts of Jammu Paryatan for starting bus service from Jammu to Purmandal and Utter Behni Temples for the welfare of people of Jammu city as well the tourists. He said that this bus will ferry pilgrims to the Purmandal and Utter Behni Temples on every Sunday from Raghunath Mandir, Jammu on very minimal charges. He said that Jammu Darshan is a first of its kind special open rooftop bus service to ferry tourists for sightseeing of historical and religious places.
Singh highlighted the benevolent move of Maharaja Gulab Singh for laying foundation of Dharmarth Trust with a motive to expand and develop temples in the erstwhile Jammu and Kashmir State. He highly-praised Maharaja Gulab Singh and his succeeders Maharaja Ranbir Singh, Maharaja Paratap Singh and Maharaja Hari Singh for their significant role in promotion of Sanatan Dharam and maintaining Dharmarth Trust, which is doing yeoman’s job in looking after places of religious significance in J&K.

This pious place is also popularly known as "Chhota Kashi" as a large number of Hindus perform last rites and rituals here for the peace to departed souls.
