Mata Vaishno Devi Yatra: Amidst the beautiful mountains and scenic beauty of Jammu, at the foothills of TrikutParvat, Katra, lies the temple of Mata Vaishno Devi. At an altitude of 5,300 feet and with mountains forming the lower Himalayas, it is one of the most sought after places in India. It is one of the main Hindu shaktipeeths and is majorly visited by devotees of goddess Durga. Mata Vaishno Devi is considered to be one of the divine forms of MahaKali, MahaLakshmi and MahaSaraswati, combined. The legend talks about all the goddesses coming together and bestowing their strengths and powers upon a human girl born in the abode of a Ratnakar. With traits of MahaSaraswati, the girl, named Vaishnavi displayed great appetite of knowledge from an adolescent age. Attributes of the power of MahaKali gave Vaishnavi the courage to face adverse situations during her pursuit of Lord Vishnu, and virtuous traits of MahaLakshmi gave her the power of assuming forms of goddesses.

Bhumika Temple: Commonly known as Darshani Darwaza, this place provided an exquisite view of infamous three peaks of Trikut Parvat. At just a kilometer distance from Katra, it is said to be the very location where the Goddess disappeared. This precisely is the location where the Yatra begins.

Ban Ganga Temple: About 4 kilometers from Katra, the river that flows at this place is said to have appeared after the Goddess shot an arrow to quench her thirst. It is also a popular belief that the Goddess washed her hair with the river water here.  Less than 2 kilometers from this point, Charan paduka (Foot Print) temple houses said to be true imprints of the Goddess’s feet on a stone.

Ardh Kuwari: Ardh Kuwari is around 7 kilometers from Katra. Popular legend is that the Goddess took shelter and meditated here in a cave for 9 months. This also denotes the completion of half the journey.

After about 2.5 kilometers of precipitous ascent through Haathi matha, one arrives at Sanji Chhat where accommodations and rest houses are built for pilgrims. Once you reach Sanji  Chhat, the rest of the path is a downhill journey to the cave.

Shri Ram temple: Very near to Vaishno Devi cave is the temple of Lord Rama with Sita Ma and brother Laxman beautifully engraved inside.  Ram Katha is preached by the priests and moralized.

The Bhairon (Bhairav) Temple: Standing at a height of 6700 feet is the Bhairon temple elegantly lighted with solar lights is a customary habit of the pilgrims to visit the temple. Mythology says that Bhairon was slewed by Mataji and His body is kept outside the shrine.

The entry point to the cave is commonly known as Bhavan where devotees can buy Prasad and keep their belongings in the lockers.  After the long-established tradition of bathing to line up for the darshan, begins the unceasing chanting of “Jai Mata Di.”
