  • It was wonderful to visit the shrine dedicated to the mother goddess. It was exhilarating and awesome feeling to witness the abode of goddess. It was uphill task to even to climb down. It requires stamina and dedication to go by stairs. Though there are many other ways to reach the shrine such as mules, porters etc. A must visit to any believer in the lifetime

  • श्री माता वैष्णो देवी जी के पवित्र तीर्थ से तीर्थ यात्रा को हमारे समय की सबसे पवित्र तीर्थ माना जाता है। दुनियाभर में मन्थ मंगा मुरादेन फरारी कर्ण वाली माता के रूप में लोकप्रिय है, जिसका अर्थ है, जो माता अपने बच्चों की इच्छा पूरी कर लेते हैं, श्री माता वैष्णो देवी जी त्रिचतु नाम की तीन नुकीले पहाड़ की परतों में स्थित एक पवित्र गुफा में रहते हैं ( Trikoot)। पवित्र गुफा हर साल लाखों भक्तों को आकर्षित करती है। दरअसल, हर साल पवित्र तीर्थ यात्रा करने वालों की संख्या एक करोड़ से अधिक है। यह भारत और विदेशों के सभी हिस्सों से श्रद्धा को घेरे हुए भक्तों के निराधार विश्वास के कारण है।

  • Great place for a short family vacation. Climb is not too difficult while food is easily available on purchase basis. Though queue is decently maintained at the mandir entrance, there is definitely room for improvement.

  • Nice place. Recommended to start walking in afternoon. And return in morning. You can stay there as they provide blanket with deposit money 100/Blanket. And return when you deposit in morning.

  • 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 around 5000 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 for vacations in Jammu. Very Beautiful & Sacred Place. Jai Mata Di!!!
