Arrangements are good for resting... You have to just pay for blankets... Which will be refunded afterwards..

  • Best Holy place of Hindus ever. Peoples over there was very good in nature. One would obviously feels a good bond with nature over that place. Also the food was very tasty and avialable at very rates. Restrooms, guesthouse facility was also very nice.😘😘😍😍

  • Probably one of the most visited Divine place in World. Famed cave shrine, positioned in the foothills of the Himalayas, Vaishno Devi is one of the most visited sacred places among devotees who throng the temple from far and wide. It is devoted to Mother Goddess and is one of the oldest of all the temples in India. The temple is positioned at an elevation of 5200 ft and one requires carrying out an excursion of 13 km on foot to make it to this holy place. Natural beauty can be relished throughout the yatra. Moreover, the spiritual experience one will have during the Darshan is beyond words, so don’t forget to visit this holy place on vacations in Jammu. A lifetime travelling experience.

  • Very peaceful place but no one is allowed to stand even for 3 seconds. We simply have to pray in 2 seconds and are then forced to leave immediately by police staff. Security is good but they need to understand sometimes that we travel by foot more than 14KM just to be there and they force us to leave even as we blink our eyes.
