  • Holy place for pilgrimage avoid Saturday Sunday and gazetted Holiday to visit due to rush. Old cave open from 15 jan to 15 feb during night hrs.

  • The new road to bhawan is much better and shorter than old one drinking water and other facility are good, cleaning is also good. From Adhkuwari one new tunnel is much better for pedestrian and electric car. In winter season there is no crowd. In nearby the Shiv Khodi cave is also a good religious place to visit, its around 85 Km. From Katra

  • Awesome experience with the durbar of mata Rani....

  • Jai mata di.. great experience. One of the most famous devi shrines located at the top of Trikoot parvat.
