Trip to Mata Vaishno Devi Temple..

Spent last week of April and first week of May traveling to Mata Vaishno Devi Temple in Jammu.

Sharing a few pics and some information that you may like to note.
  • The Best month to go to Vaishno Devi Temple is January.
  • Don't rush - try to get a room to spend a night near the main temple 'Bhavan'. Get up early next morning and spend some time among the Trikut hills.
  • Don't climb up/ down barefoot. Take light canvas shoes.
  • Ponies can be taken to climb up but while climbing down better avoid them. Instead walk and enjoy the scenary.
  • Take Yatra Parchi in advance. You will thus avoid long queue in Katra to get the same. Yatra Parchi is available online at -
  • Paper Walnut is worth buying. Depending on season, it will cost around Rs 150-200/- per Kg. (Walnut season is September-October)

Jai Mata Di....
