Vaishno Devi Yatra

Vaishno Devi Pooja

Keeping in mind the religious sentiment and devotions of the Yatris, a system of prayers has been introduced by the Shrine Board. This new Poojan system accommodates the religious sentiments associated with the pilgrimage and is in line with the system being followed at some other revered places of worship.

There are two types of prayer system offered at Vaishno Devi shrine:

1. Individual Poojan
2. Shraddha Suman Vishesh Pooja

Individual Poojan

Under this Poojan scheme, every morning a Hawan or Pooja is performed in the Yagya-shalla. Desirous devotees are allowed to participate in this Hawan and their name(s), gotra etc. are then chanted along with the prayers offered for the welfare and prosperity of them and their families.

In addition to that, those who are unable to attend or partake in Vaishno Devi Yatra can also have pooja performed in their name. They need not have to be physically present. The Poojan is performed in their name and the Prashad is sent to him by post.

The details of individual poojan are as follows:

Category A (Devotees need NOT be physically present)

Cost: Rs. 1100

Under this category, Poojan is performed in the name of the person(s) for/by whom Pooja has been registered even while the devotee(s) is not present in the Pooja. A maximum of five names from a family can be given for the purpose. These are then chanted during the course of Poojan. The Prashadam is sent through courier to the given address.

Poojan can be booked for any day and facility remains open for whole of the year. Advance booking is allowed for this category of Poojan. Spot booking is also allowed subject to availability of slots

Category B (Devotees need to be present)
