Considered one of the holiest temples in India, the temple of Vaishno Devi resides at an altitude of over 5000 feet above the sea level. Vaishno Devi, also known as Vaishnavi and Mata Rani, is at a distance of 12 km from Katra.  Every year, nearly a million devotees visit the temple to offer their prayers to the deity. A board, the Shri Mata Vaishno Devi Shrine Board, has been setup by the Government to look after the welfare of the temple. 

From Katra, apart from walking, few other modes of transportation are available. The J&K Government offers helicopter services from both Jammu and Katra to the temple. Little ponies and Palkis are also available for the journey. However, most of the devotees prefer the journey on foot to reach the temple. It takes nearly 4 hours to reach the temple, and 3 hours to come back downhill.
