HistoryEdit

The station has been built as part of the Jammu–Baramulla line megaproject, aiming to link the Kashmir Valley with the rest of the Indian railway network. The Leg 2 section of this network is incomplete. It is expected to be completed by 2021.[2]

Reduced LevelEdit

The station is situated at an elevation of 1582.79 metres above mean sea level.[3]

DesignEdit

Like every other station in this mega project, this station also features Kashmiri wood architecture, with an intended ambience of a royal court which is designed to complement the local surroundings to the station. Station signage is predominantly in Urdu, English and Hindi.
