Favorite thing: Police or army are quite a normal sight in airports, but there are usually not a lot in local (non-international) airports, but Jammu is in a special military region, and, if checks are not that drastic, you feel the military presence and the atmosphere is a bit ?heavy?. Lots of militaries at the airport, but also a lot in town, with road blocks, militaries at the entrance of temples, in the streets, near the hotels. . . It is not war, but their presence reveals a potential ?danger? at all times.
There are a number of temples and other public places where you cannot get in with a camera; the militaries ask to leave it with them, they give it back after the visit; since my childhood I have some problems with uniforms and I did not trust them, so I preferred not to visit in these cases, and be sure I keep my camera. And do not try to hide your camera as they anyway will make body searches before you enter some places.
