We will reach jammu Tawi railway station at 07h15 on 10th April-2013.

We are a family of 4 adults and belong to Kota, Rajsthan. We are Agarwal Vaish and are vegitarian.

How to reach Katra?

How to book good dharamshala accomodation at Katra for 2 nights?

Budget: Total Rs.3000/-

Hi Sunil - The moment you reach jammu railway stn, step outside and there's the taxi/bus station. I would suggest to board the bus, they'll charge 60rs per head and will take about 2 hrs to reach katra.

For accomodation, i will strongly recommend shrine board's hotel - Niharika Complex. They charge 1350 rs for a 4-bedded AC room and mark my words, the rooms are just awesome in this price band. The rooms can only be booked online at https:/…login.aspx

The only catch is - The booking starts one month in advance. Try booking exactly one month in advance at sharp 12 AM (the moment date changes on the system). It's due to the heavy demand of these rooms that if you miss the attempt even by 5-7 minutes, all rooms will be booked for that date and can't be booked later.

As far as food preferences are concerned, you'll not even find piece of onion in the entire town - be it a dhaaba, streets or restaurants.

Hope this helps! If you need more information on anything, feel free to post.

What are the charges of AC taxi from Jammu airport to Katra drop for 4 adults & 2 kids? Is there a pre-paid booth at the airport for this, or do we need to book beforehand through an agent? Are taxis readily available from the pre-paid booth in May? Thanks.
