Devotees can visit the mother sitting in their homes
Let us tell you that every year, thousands of devotees visit Vaishno Devi in the Sharadiya Navaratri. But this time due to the corona epidemic, the temple administration has limited the number of devotees to visit the Mother. Although the people who cannot go to the temple can see the mother sitting at home, the temple administration has made complete arrangements regarding this.
The administration has launched the Mata Vaishno Devi app. Through this app, you can have a live Darshan of Mother’s Aarti and Puja sitting in your homes. A devotee who has visited Mata has told that full care is being taken of the corona.
The decoration of the temple is very well done. Flowers have been brought from Bangalore for this decoration. Explain that in view of the convenience of the devotees, Shri Mata Vaishno Devi Shrine Board has started the home delivery service of Prasad in collaboration with the Department of Posts.
