One of THE must visit place green scenic lovely.

One can reach Shiv Khori - The Lord Shiva Temple in Jammu from Katra, Jammu and other places by public transport or inhered private vehicle. The Shrine Board has done a great job of managing the entire premises very well, kudos to the Shrine Board Team . You can hire horses at the fixed price to go up to the hills and the main temple. We had a great time, and everyone who visits would love the place.

Beautiful cave shrine

Shiv Khori or Shiva's Cave is a natural cave containing a self made ling. This cave shrine is located in Reasi district, close to Katra and Udhampur. Visitors visit Mata Vaishno Devi shrine with a trip to this cave. An excellent place to visit surrounded by natural landscapes and excellent view of the mountains. The shrine is also good, do take a guide so that you can get a good knowledge about the place. A natural Shivling is here on which milky water is dropping from the ceiling of the cave. One of the best Shiva shrine.

A calm and soothing place after a trek

Very beautiful, spiritual, calm and soothing place, it is 4 km trek from main gate to the holy shrine, like Mata Vaishno Devi, pony service is available one can avail that if not possible to walk. Very clean and well maintained place, eating shops were there in the beginning only.

Great phase of thrill

Naturally appeared caves representing the abode of lord shiva will lead one through a great phase of thrill as one will enter the shrine through a dark and thin cave path. 200km above sea level one can climb the hills via ponies or caravan. And on successfully completing one's journey one will be free of pain and tiredness.
