Here we are back with great news for all devotees out there. Whoever has made the plan to visit the Vaishno Devi shrine of Jammu and Kashmir but the plan was postponed due to pandemic, the services have been resumed after a medical checkup.
As the Navratri festival has come and on the auspicious occasion, Pony, Pithu, and Palki services have resumed after showing the COVID-19 negative certificate.
According to the shrine board, the traveler limit has been increased from 5000 to 7000, and an app called Vaishno Devi app has been launched to see the live aarti.
The shrine will be sanitized from time to time to maintain the beauty of it and social distancing is very must including face mask.
When you are traveling for the first time, you have to begin your journey from the base camp in Katra. Here you will get an option to take a horse ride to Adhkwari which is at the halfway to Vaishno Devi Mandir.
The Vaishno Devi is the holy place where you will not feel even a little bit nervous while talking to strangers. The whole vibes are so good that after a point of time, you will find yourself repeating the “Jai Mata Di” on loop. The whole vibe is completely different, beautiful, and positive during the time of Navratri.
You are not allowed to carry cameras, mobile phones, or any other equipment inside the temple. You have to submit all of these in the cloakroom which is fully secured and safe.
Battery rickshaws are available for senior citizens during the daytime. Helicopters are also available but you have to book your ticket in advance.
One in your lifetime, you must visit the Vaishno Devi Shrine, and when you go there, you should also visit Lord Bhairo Nath’s temple which is a few km away from the temple. Without visiting there, your yatra will be considered incomplete.
