One of the most important places of worship in India is the shrine of Vaishno Devi. The holy place is located in the small town of Katra. Katra is a part of Udhampur district of Jammu and Kashmir. Devotees of Lord Shiva are known to visit the place very often. It is said that the pilgrimage is only complete is the temple of Shiv Khori, located 1.6 km away, is also visited. Katra is also home to many water places that are open to the public.
The increasing attraction towards Vaishno Devi has resulted in swift development of the place. Helicopters and eco friendly vehicles are available to take pilgrims up to the Bhawan. Even if you are not a pilgrim, you can still visit Katra for other attractions like Banganga and the Chenab river. Mountain climbing and family vacations can also help you have a fun time here.
