Katra, a small town in Jammu and Kashmir, is situated at the lower reaches of the Trikuta hills. Due to its proximity to the famous Vaishno Mata Devi Temple, it is visited by thousands of pilgrims from far off places. They start their religious journey towards the Shrine from this place. A huge number of Katra hotels are located to cater to the massive crowd of tourists.
Katra hotels provide well-equipped rooms with all facilities and provide you with a comfortable accommodation. The Vaishno Devi Temple is situated at a distance of around 10km and this can be covered easily by helicopter. However, most pilgrims, as a mark of devotion towards the deity, prefer to walk towards the Shrine. Pilgrims who are unable to walk due to health reasons can also reach the temple on a horse back or can book a ‘charpai’ or a carriage carried by people. These services are of great help for the pilgrims as it enables people from all walks of society to visit the temple and offer prayers. The warm service of the Katra hotels provides comfort to the pilgrims.
