Guys I personally believe in Ma Vaishnodevi so much & it's my duty to visit her place once a year & this 2018 I thought should start with having blessing of Ma. Also January the temperature is also decent there at katra and surrounded area.
We planned this journey a one month back so that we got all the train, bus, hotel tickets done at convinent rate and tripoto helped a lot in planning. A special credit to tripoto.
Well we took our train from indore to katra known as jammu tavi which is journey of around 29 hours. From katra its only 20 kms journey to vaishnav devi.
One can go to temple by so many ways like electric car, horse, plane (for which one need to do pre booking as it's overloaded everytime).
We thought of some adventure and took
horse for the journey. As this was the time of January the weather was so beautiful and riding with horse our eyes captured the most beautiful scenic beauty with clouds & snow surrounded all over the area.
As and when we reached close to temple we thought if shifting for horse to electric car for the convenience of all of us.
And we finally reached the temple cave, Vaishnodevi which is dedicated to Mother goddess Vaishnodevi having thr famous shrine allures millions of devotees .
In the ways a lot of eye catching attractions came like water fall in between, scenic greenery beauty everywhere and so many which is captured in the camera.
Also we found some people coming by walking all the way long to the temple.w
Apart from this temple there are so many other attractions -
1) Ardh kuwari cave - Mata Vaishnodevi was believed to take rest in this cave for 9 months and these days it act as stopover for the pilgrims.
2)Bhairavnath temple - It's a saying that
Journey will be incomplete if one has not went to this mandir.
3)City shopping - Though this place is not a good one for shopping but one can find jammu kashmir famous product which can be taken as souvenir as one has been to Vaishno Devi.
Everything ended so well we took some rest at our hotel after the religious journey is completed then back to indore.
Everytime I come to this place my soul feel fresh. Guys try and make time to visit this place At Least once a Year!!
