About Katra

Katra is where the holy temple of Maa Vaishno Devi is located. Every year hundreds of thousands of pilgrims visit this holy shrine, about 40 kms from Jammu. The town is at the foothills of Trikuta Mountain and acts as a gateway to the Vaishno Devi temple, which is about 13 KMs uphill from Katra. Remember to carry your 'yatra parchi' (token slip to visit temple) while in Katra. Stroll through Katra's main bazaar and pick up souvenirs, Kashmiri shawls with delicate embroidery and dried fruits.
