"Katra visit"

  • 6.0/7
  • Posted 2 months ago
Katra is very nice holy place. It is so good visit - I would like to visit again and again. Food is not so good, too much spicy. But scenery is so good. Hotels need to improve. Sight seeing in Jammu is too good. There is a waterfall which is stiff and nice. Multiple good temples including 9 Durga temple.

"Shree Vaishno devi temple"

  • 4.0/7
  • Posted Oct 23, 2017
I visited in month of Oct to temple which was the best time to see the temple.
Very pleasant and satisfactory, spiritual inside the temple.
Started from Delhi rajdhani and reached Jammu at 6am and started from Jammu to Katra at 6. 30 to 8. 30am.
Stayed in shree palace hotel. Keep everything in hotel itself including Mobile, leather belts, bags and shoes. All above not allowed inside temple. If you take this you have to stand 2 to 3 hrs in queue at cloak room.
Thanks and have a pleasant stay.

"A reasonable Priced Holy Destination ..."

  • 5.0/7
  • Posted Oct 15, 2017
Katra being a holy place. Is well connected via road and transpolar from delhi). The NH 44 is well built for road travelers .. And Jammu civil airport is the closest being around 49kms away from Katra. The weather remains around 40 degree C in summers but is quite comfortable around sep- nov and very cold in the monthes of dec to feb. Good hotels are also available in Katra. And on outskirts of the same .. Locals are available to carry foot massage for u at a reaonable price. Travel agents are available all round the Katra market who ca. Arrange a tour to different places in J&K. Overall its not very modernized but since a holy place .. A well planned tour will be good.

"Vaishno Devi temple darshan"

  • 7.0/7
  • Posted Sep 27, 2017
What I loved the most about Katra, being a pure vegetarian had lots of option for meals and that too without onion & garlic. People are very courteous and friendly. Enjoyed hanging around in the evening and buying dry fruits. Weather was favorable & with the grace of my had a wonderful darshan without any difficulty.

"Jai mata di"

  • 7.0/7
  • Posted Sep 5, 2017
Katra is know for mata vaishno devi shrine. It is the holy place for hindu religion. People from all over the country or international come to the holy shine. Its an hike of 15 km to hold shine cave. The hike has many steep slopes and average time taken for an hiker to reach the shine would be around 3 to 4 hrs. En-route the hike there are many pit stops for the Pilgrims to get some energy and rest. While on hike you will see people encouraging other people with jai mata di and some holy songs. Overall enjoyed and I was blessed with matas blessing
