A nice temple, one of India's most sacred places. Leather objects aren't allowed inside the temple. A soothing ambiance.

"A visit to this place was just like dream coming true"

  • 6.50/7
  • Posted 3 weeks ago
A visit to this place was just like dream coming true! Everything was superb, except, the time one gets for 'darshan'. It should be extended if possible, as it takes years of planning to visit the place.

"Place is so nice"

It was an awesome experience. One must visit the place and walk through the way to have a satisfactory darshan. Always try to visit the temple at night in order to avoid rush and crowd at the place. Carry least luggage with you.

We visit mata vaishno devi on 8th may 2014. We started to climb 7.30 pm and reached by 12.30 am. The distance between Banganga to Bhawan is 14 km don't take horse. It is very tedious to ride on horse for ladies.

Its good to visit. At places like Vishnov Devi you feel safe all around the place. You can visit the place with your family. This place is so very peaceful.

"Plan your trip meticulously !!"

  • 7.00/7
  • Posted Apr 8, 2014
I went to the divine shrine with my parents and wife in March 2014 during the holi time. We didn't get any ticket in trains despite multiple bookings. Finally we travelled through sleeper coach in bus. I mean to write this review only to impress upon the importance of advanced planning. This place has rush throughout the year and gets out of control during the holidays. So if you are not ok with too much of rush please do not plan your trip during any holiday period. Online booking for helicopter is available one month before the day of darshan, it gets filled up within hour or say minutes. Those planning to go all by walking the whole 13 km need no any prior bookings. But mind you, though the road is good, this 13 km is all steep hilly slope.

"One of the Best Temples in India"

Vaishnodevi Temple is such a high security temple. Inside or around the temple you will not found any beggars. Public Facility provided by Temple to all Pilgrimages are best.

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.
