  • Religious place of bhairo baba. After the worship in vaishno mata visit here. In the month of dec, jan you can also see snowfall. Enjoy the ropeway also.
  • Bhairon Temple is located in Bhairon Ghaati in the Trikuta Mountains at a distance of 1.5 kms from Mata Vaishno Devi Bhawan. Darshan to Bhairon is compulsory after Visiting the holy shrine of Vaishno Maa, It is believed that the journey to Mata Vaishno Devi is incomplete without the darshan in Bhairon Temple. This temple involves steep climb uphill which can be undertaken by foot, ponies or palanquins (palkis or human driven carts). From quite sometime now, Ropeway or Cable Car is also operating between the Bhawan to Bhairon Temple, which takes about 3-5 minutes and the ticket for round journey takes mere 100 INR, which is worth the cost. According to legends, Bhairon Nath was killed by Vaishnavi and while lying on death bed, bhairon nath seeked an apology, Mata gave her a boon of being the last link of the pilgrimage. It is believed that when Mata killed Bhairon Nath, his head fell at this place while his body remained at the entrance of the holy cave. Darshan inside Bhairon Temple is also in the rock form. Head with face of Bhairon Baba and Hanuman Ji is worshipped by the pilgrims. The temple is situated at an altitude of 6,619 ft. There is also a Havan Kund at the temple, don’t forget to taste a pinch of Havan Raakh, which is considered divine. Beware of naughty Monkeys in the area which can snatch your belongings and prasad. There is also a huge arena adjacent to Bhairon temple where pilgrims and tourists can view and take pictures of Trikuta mountains very closely and also see the Katra Valley. The upkeep of Bhairon Temple is undertaken by Mata Vaishnodevi Shrine board. We were lucky to see sunshine in the morning when we started the climb, then fierce clouds covered the mountains, it started raining within no time and thereafter we got to see heavy snow covered the entire Trikuta mountains and Bhairon Ghati in White.
