It is said that till the time, you are not called by Mata Vaishno Devi herself, you just cannot visit her shrine, no matter how many times you try. So if you happen to visit it, do consider yourself extremely lucky, for there are many who still crave to visit the Vaishnodevi temple every year but are still waiting for their turn.
Meanwhile, the number of devotees who offer their prayers to Maa Vaishnodevi is increasing day by day. This year itself has seen an all time high in the number of devotees visiting the shrine. The record number of pilgrims visiting the shrine has gone upto around 88 lakhs. Keeping the increasing number of devotees coming every year in mind the Shri Mata Vaishnodevi Shrine Board has introduced a number of measures. A new state-of-the-art Spiritual Growth Centre will begin functioning by the end of this month while a new helipad on the Katra-Reasi road will be built to cater to the growing number of tourists.
