9 Top Places to Visit in Katra

Mata Vaishno Devi

Jammu Vaishno Devi Katra is the second most sacred pilgrimage site amongst Hindus. Devotees from different parts of the country visit the shrine seeking the blessing of the goddess.

Charan Paduka

Inside the temple, devotees can witness the rock which has her footprints. Charan Paduka temple is situated at a staggering height of 1030m. Most of the pilgrims who come to visit the Mata Vaishno Devi temple also pay a visit to the Charan Paduka temple as well. It is one of the most popular tourist places near Katra Mata Vaishno Devi.

Pilgrims take a dip into the river while on their way to the Vaishno Devi temple. It helps them to regain their strength so they can continue their journey to the cave. The river is considered to be sacred by the devotees of the Hindu faith. It is believed that Mata Vaishno Devi shot an arrow into the ground which caused the river to flow. She then used the water to wash her hair. This is the reason why the river is also known as Bal Ganga (Bal means hair in Hindi). It is one of the many popular places to visit in Katra.

Life Stories by Veena Patil

‘Exchange a coin and you make no difference but exchange a thought and you can change the world.’ Hi! I’m Veena Patil... Fortunate enough to have answered my calling some 35 years ago and content enough to be in this business of delivering happiness almost all my life. Tourism indeed moulds you into a minimalist... Memories are probably our only possession. And memories are all about sharing experiences, ideas and thoughts. Life is simple, but it becomes easy when we share. Places and people are two things that interest me the most. While places have taken care of themselves, here’s my podcast, which I consider to be a great platform, through which I can share some interesting stories I live and love on a daily basis with all you wonderful people out there. I hope you enjoy the journey... Let’s go, celebrate life!

Chandanwari is located in the outskirts of Pahalgam and like the Vaishno Devi in Katra, it is the source of the journey for another religion shrine among the Hindus, the Amarnath Temple.
