Katra is a beautiful township on the way to the most famous Mata Vaishnodevi Mandir in the state of Jammu-Tawi. This upcoming pilgrim centre houses many holy temples, and the yatris during their overnight stay here visit almost all of them without fail. Among the many, this Vajeswari temple popular as Lalika temple also has great attraction for us. It is a newly built temple after destruction by invaders, in the past. And decently maintained temple too, offering agamic puja with great devotional favour everyday. Periodical festivals are celebrated with great enthusiasm and they draw thousands of bhaktas whose lusty participation heightens the divinity of the temple by broadcasting Mother's matchless compassion. The image is a specimen of superb craftsmanship and in her exquisite decoration raises the hands of the visitors the moment they enter into her magnetic aura. Pilgrims offer soulful prayer for success in their yatra. It is a visit worthy shrine of great spiritual significance.

It lies 20 km off Jammu city-accessible by, bus.
