JAMMU & KASHMIR :-The religious site of Charan Paduka in Katra is popular amongst pilgrims who visit Mata Vaishno Devi Cave Temple. This white temple is believed to be the place where Mata Vaishno Devi/Vaishnavi stopped over to check if she was still being chased by Bhairon Nath, the disciple of Mahayogi Guru Goraksh Nathji.
.In Charan Paduka Temple, the feet impression of Mata Vaishno Devi can be seen on a rock slab. The holy temple in Katra is situated at a height of 1030 m and is at a short distance away from Banganga River and Bridge. It was earlier a small shrine but now it has been transformed into a scenic and large temple.
.According to the legend, while escaping from Bhairon Nath towards the caves in the Trikuta Hills, Mata Vaishno Devi came to a halt at a place where one can still see her footprints on a rock slab.
.Like Mata Vaishno Devi, Charan Paduka temple is open throughout the year, however, the best time to visit here is between March and October. The weather is quite pleasant during these months.
.An important religious site for the Hindu devotees, Ban Ganga is a sacred river where devotees in Katra like to take a dip before continuing the Mata Vaishno Devi Yatra. Originating from the southern slope of the Shivalik Range of Himalayas, Ban Ganga River has two ghats where a large number of Hindu devotees take a holy dip.
.The river is an important tributary of the Chenab River and got its name from two words, Ban meaning Arrow and Ganga which stands for sacred river of India, Ganges. Thus, the river is also called the twin of Ganges.
.According to the legend, when Mata Vaishno Devi/Vaishnavi accompanied by Langoor-Veer/Monkey was heading to her abode in Trikuta Hills, he felt thirsty. Then the goddess shot an arrow in the ground, and a spring sprang up, which is today recognized as Ban Ganga.
.It is believed that the goddess washed her hair in the water of the river, and thus, it is also known as Bal Ganga, where Bal means hair.
.The months between March and October are considered to be the best to visit Ban Ganga River. However, due to little rain in the monsoon season, the river does not have enough water in it. In the winter months too, the water from river decrease or almost dries up.

.Legend has it that Ma Vaishnodevi took shelter in this cave while meditating for nine months. This is the place where Ma Vaishnodevi beheaded Bhairavnarth in the form of Mahakali.
