2 Night & 3 Days
From the holy city of Katra in the state of Jammu and Kashmir, India, stands a shrine that is revered by millions of devotees from around the world. Mata Vaishno Devi Temple is a popular Hindu pilgrimage site, where one can seek blessings from goddesses Lakshmi, Saraswati, and Durga. The three goddesses are manifested in the form of three natural rock formations, known as pindies. This is a unique pilgrimage where devotees can take a trek through Ardhkuwari Cave, known as the “Way to Eternity,” where the Mata Vaishno Devi meditated for nine months to hide from Bhairo Nath Ji. It is here that one can witness the unwavering faith of the people in the goddess, overcoming all hurdles.
