Here is how you will spend your time
Day 1: Delhi To Katra
Departure from New Delhi by Train. Overnight journey in Train.
Day 02 : Veshnodevi Darshan
On arrival at Katra, Pick up from railway station and directly transfer to Hotel. After refreshment and Lunch proceed to Vaishno Devi Darsan - world famous holy shrine where your prayers are answered - at around 0100 hrs. The legend runs that over seven centuries ago Vaishno Devi was an ardent devotee of Lord
Vishnu. Bhairon Nath, a tantric, was bewitched by Vaishno Devi and gave her a chase when she was going towards Trikuta Mountains. When thirsty, the Goddess shot an arrow into the earth and water gust-out at the place where the Ban-Ganga exists today. The imprints of her feet marked the spot Charan Paduka where she rested. She meditated in the cave at Adhkwari. Since Bhairon Nath took nine months to locate her, the cave is called Garbh Joon. When found by Bhairon Nath, the Goddess made her way
out by blasting an opening with a trident. When she arrived at the holy cave at Darbar, she took on the form of Maha kali and chopped-off the head of Bhairon Nath. A temple after his name stands where the head fell on the ground. We spend about 2-3hrs at the temple for Darshan and Prasad. Over night fin Yatra.
