On reaching Dharamshala visit Kunal Pathri Mandir. This temple is where the forehead of Sati fell, hence it is also called Kapaaleshwari temple. There is a small rock (saucer or forehead shaped), on which there is always water, since time immemorial. It never dries, though it is used by the priest for goddess.When it is about to dry, there is rainfall and the rock fills up with water, through a small opening in the roof.

Katra to Vaishno Devi – 17 Kms
From Katra, you will climb one km to Banganga, where the goddess is believed to have stopped to drink water; then after a couple of kms you will reach Charan Paduka where the goddess stopped and looked behind while running away from the Bhairon Nath; 6 kms further is the cave shrine of Ardhkunwari, where it is believed she rested and meditated for nine months.
The last halt before the actual shrine is the Bhawan, where there are arrangements for wash- and- change, accommodation and for depositing luggage and valuables.
The vaishno devi cave is 30 metres long and just one-and-a half mt high. At the end of the cave are shrines dedicated to the three forms of the mother goddess – Mahakali, Mahalakshmi and Mahasarasvati. A rock just opposite these Pindees in the main Bhawan oozes out continuous natural water and is said to mark the presence of Lord Shiva in the temple.
Pilgrims have to enter in small groups through a narrow opening and walk through ice-cold waters to reach the shrines. According to legend, the mother goddess hid in the cave while escaping a demon (Bhairon Nath), whom she ultimately killed.
