Ranbir Canal is a serene picnic spot situated about 2 kms from Jammu, in Jammu and Kashmir. Completed in 1905, the main canal is 60 km in length and its distribution system about 400 km. It takes off from left of Chenab River up-stream Akhnoor Bridge, 25 km north-east of Jammu city and passes through four taluks of Jammu District (Jammu, R S Pura, Bishnah and Samba.) The canal was remodeled during 1968-75. There is a power house situated on the right bank of the canal. The colorful gardens on the bank of the canal, makes it more attractive. They provide excellent walkways and viewpoints of the surrounding areas. Even in summers, the water in the canal remains ice cold.
