Hindus celebrate their devotions for God by taking on an extensive journey to the holy places of their Goddesses. Vaishno Devi, situated in Katra (Jammu and Kashmir), is one of the holiest places worshiped by Hindus. It is the righteous home of Mata Vaishno Devi, a devotee of Lord Vishnu. Families trip here no matter what their colour or caste and are all blessed uniformly. This shrine is at a distance of about 600 kms from Delhi. You can go by train, bus or flight from Delhi to Jammu and thereafter you can take cab or bus to Katra which is 2 kms from Jammu. You can choose Vaishno Devi Tour Package from Delhi to successfully complete your holy trip. Thousands of devotees with a belief to reach ‘Moksh’ come to Vaishno Devi. The common trust is that one who comes here, under no circumstances, goes back home unfulfilled, as the deity for eternity fulfils their every wish. The religious holy temple is situated at a height of 5300 feet on Trikuta Mountain. The followers begin their walking journey from Katra, a 14 kms extensively difficult walk which takes about 5 hours and chanting continuously ‘prem se bolo jai mata di, jor se bolo jai mata di, saare bolo jai mata di, milke bolo jai mata di’, done by thousands of devotees with an objective to get a single sight of goddess. Though it is a physically hard trip but rather can be considered more of a divine trip. Many choose for a comfortable journey on the back of a pony or by helicopter. The chief gifts to the Goddess are red-coloured chunri and fruits with coconut.

There is a remarkable story behind the holiness of this temple: once upon a time Mata Vaishno Devi came to attend a holy celebration arranged by some child girls. When a selfish saint, named Bhairav Nath, came to knew about the arrival of Mata, he went there to destroy that holy celebration. Seeing this, Mata became angry. Bhairav Nath then attacked Mata and Mata escaped from that place and came to this cave (where now temple cave is situated). She stayed here for a little of time meditating and recollecting her divine powers. Then Mata killed Bhairav Nath cutting-off his head which fell 2 kms above the shrine. Lastly Bhairav Nath requested Mata and she then came to realize his true motivation behind this attack, which he did all this intentionally as he believed that he will attain ‘Moksh’ or ‘Liberation’ on getting killed by a Goddess. Mata then gave him a blessing boon that no one’s pilgrimage will be considered as complete without the visit to Bhairav Nath Temple (which is situated 2 kms above the shrine).

It will be surely a turning point of your life once you visit this holy place with your true heart, which you can do by choosing Vaishno Devi Tour Package.
