Katra, 14 km from the Vaishno Devi shrine, is the base camp where the devotees from all over the world gather and start their holy journey. Many devotees walk down to the shrine to show their immense faith. Before starting their journey many devotees take a day’s rest and this becomes possible through the numerous Katra hotels. You can capture breathtaking views of the beautiful scenery while walking down. Helicopter services from Katra to Vaishno Devi temple are also provided to the pilgrims. You can also hire a horse or a Palanquin which is locally called Palki.

The Katra hotels take full care of the pilgrims through their unconditional hospitality. You need to gather all the necessary information regarding the temple timings and plan your journey to this holy shrine accordingly. You will easily get all the details from the Katra hotels.

Puri, a coastal town is situated in the state of Orissa and is famous for Shri Jagannath temple. Dedicated to Lord Jagannath or the Lord of the universe, this ancient temple performs all the age-old rituals systematically even today. Thousands of pilgrims from different parts of the country and from abroad come to offer their prayers. You can easily find Puri hotels of varying range near the temple area. A Mahaprasadam of 56 dishes is offered to the Lord every day and can be purchased by the devotees at a very nominal rate.

Puri is also famous for its beaches and to lure more tourists, numerous Puri hotels are lined near the beach area. You can visit the temple in the early hours of the day and offer your prayers and spend the evening at the beach. There are certain luxurious Puri hotels that provide a private beach area where you can enjoy in complete privacy. However it is the Rath Yatra that is one of the greatest attractions. It is held every year in June-July and lakhs of pilgrims throng to this place. Devotees get overwhelmed when they see their God coming out of the temple premises in grandly decorated chariots.

Tirupati, a small town in Andhra Pradesh, is a prominent place of pilgrimage. The Tirumala hill, comprising of seven mountain peaks, houses the famous Venkateswara temple. Dedicated to Lord Venkateswara, this temple is located on the seventh peak. Millions of devotees come here every year. Various Tirupati hotels provide the appropriate ambience and comfort to the devotees. The temple trust provides full support and manages the huge crowd excellently.

Tirupati hotels range from luxurious starred hotels to budget hotels allowing accommodation for people from various economic strata. Being one of the busiest temples in the world, it is better if you book your hotel in advance. Online booking of Tirupati hotels can be done very easily. Many hotels are strategically located facing the Tirumala temple wherein you get to have view of the auspicious temple from your room. There are other local temples in and around Tirupati. Sri Padmavati Samovar temple, the Govindarajaswami temple, the Kodandaramaswami temple and the Kapileshwaraswami Temple are situated near Tirupati and have great significance.
