Katra

Katra ©
Located at the foothills of the Trikuta Mountains, Katra serves as a base for the great pilgrimage to the cave shrine of Mata Vaishno Devi.
Shivkhori and Bhairo Baba Temple are good opportunities to explore the local culture. You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Mubarak Mandi Palace and Baba Dhansar. Venture out of the city with trips to Naag Mandir (in Patnitop), Udhampur (Siar Baba & Krimchi Temples) and Jammu City (Bagh-e-Bahu & Dogra Art Museum). There's still lots to do: contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Nau Devi Temple and make a trip to Agar Jitoo.
