The Vaishno Devi Temple is an important Hindu temple dedicated to Maa Vaishno Devi located in Katra, Reasi District at the Trikuta Mountains of Jammu & Kashmir. The temple is one of the 108 Shakti Peethas dedicated to Durga, who is worshipped as Vaishno Devi. It is one of the most visited pilgrimage centers of India. Every year millions of visitors visit the temple. During festivals like Navaratri, the count even increases to one crore visitors.
How to reach Vaishnodevi Bhawan:-
There are direct trains and buses to Katra.
The temple or Bhawan is 12 km from Katra, and devotees who go there to seek blessing have to trek, or take ponies or palkhis, but the easiest and the fastest way to reach there is via helicopters. You can opt for helicopter services up to Sanjichhat, which is 9.5 km from Katra.
How to reach Bhairon dev Temple:-
Though the temple is situated at a distance of just 2 kms from the Bhawan, but the climb is extremely steep making it tough for elderly pilgrims. It can be covered in 5 minutes with the help of ropeway or cable car. The panoramic aerial view of Bhairo Valley from the ropeway is stunning. Ropeway charges are INR 100/- per head.
If your prepaid SIM card belongs to some zone other than Jammu & Kashmir, it won’t work in Shri Mata Vaishno Devi Katra. It would go off as soon as you enter into the borders of Jammu & Kashmir.
However, if you are carrying a postpaid SIM card of any network and any zone, it will work.
But don’t worry if you are not having a postpaid SIM because these are easily available in katra which get activated in half an hour and you can use it till your yatra ends or as much as long you want.
Basic Requirements as per Covid Guidelines:-
-Mask is mandatory.
-Vaccination certificate if you are fully vaccinated.
– Negative RTPCR report not more than 24 hours if you are not vaccinated or partially vaccinated.
-Covid Antigen test facility is available at Katra railway station so don’t worry if you are coming to Vaishnodevi without Covid negative report.
