If you are interested in visiting Vasihno Devi Temple soon, then go to katra guest house booking page to check in accommodation.

As you all know katra, in Jammu and Kashmir, holds a significant place in Hindu pilgrimage and each year attracts many visitors. It is a place from where the path to holy shrine starts. Recognizing its importance, Shri Mata Vaishno Devi Katra railway station was inaugurated by Prime Minister Narendra Modi on July 4, 2014. Due to railway link available the number of tourists has increased manifold. As a result the demand for hotel accommodation has also risen. To take advantage of this high demand, hotel owners in the area have increased rates/ staying prices quite a bit. The rooms are highly expensive and common men is forced to stay in freely run dormitories which are not as comfortable.

  4. Family Room (3 Bedded) Common toilets & Bathroom = 1000 + 100 = 1100/- discounted price Rs.1099/-
  5. Standard Room = 1200 + 120 = Rs. 1320/-
