Vaishno Devi new guidelines, Do’s and Don’ts

Vaishno devi yatra guidelines 2020

Jammu Kashmir Administration issued new guidelines for Vaishno Devi Yatra. New rules were announced after a review meeting on the current covid situation of the state. Check out the Rules and Regulations for safe Vaishno Devi Yatra. Also, we have made a checklist for you. Have a look.

What are Vaishno Devi Yatra New Guidelines?

  • Pilgrims visiting the Mata Vaishno Devi shrine must carry a valid and verifiable RT-PCR or Rapid Antigen Test not older than 72 hours.
  • Only those pilgrims, who do not show any COVID-19 related symptoms, will be allowed to visit the shrine.
  • On arrival at Bhawan, obtain the group number at the Yatra slip check post to get into the queue for Darshans.
  • Proceed for Darshans only when the Group number is announced and avoid crowding for Darshans at Gate No.1. Abide by the procedure and wait for the turn of Darshans. Do not attempt to jump the queue.
  • Nothing except cash and selected offerings are allowed inside the Holy Cave. All other belongings need to be deposited in the free cloakrooms.
  • Chanting of slogans of praises inside the cave is not allowed as it disturbs the other pilgrims.
  • Don’t offer any cash or jewelry in front of the Holy Pindies. Instead, deposit the same in the donation/jewelry boxes.
  • Darshans at Bhairon temple are done only after Darshans at the Holy Cave.
