Mata Vaishnodevi Shrine in Katra, Jammu

The famous Vaishnodevi shrine of Jammu in India is famous for wishes being granted coming true. It is said that only those can visit the shrine in whose destiny the visit is written.

Its one visit can change your life in such a positive manner that you can hardly believe it.

To reach the Shrine, you have to first alight at Katra, which is the Indian Army base camp about 15 kms from the shrine.

Acommodations are available at Katra, its also quite safe when compared to Kashmir.

Best time to visit is Oct to Feb.

The Shrine is shown in many of the Bollywood(India's Hollywood) films where devotees travel the whole of 15 kms bare foot to reach atop the mountain.

Absolutely recommended for a visit.
