Cloak Rooms

Apart from the free cloak room facility provided by Shri Mata Vaishno Devi Shrine Board, this service is provided by many lodges and hotels as well. Some of the shops or sarairs also provide this facility but it is suggested to check their credentials before handing over your luggage and belongings to them.

It is advised to the pilgrims not to carry any food packages along with them as everything will be made available at the destination, and are advised to travel light. Even blankets are made available over there so it is adviced not to carry anything except some personal belongings. All the carry bags are to be submitted inside the cloak rooms (official Shrine Board cloak rooms are preferred at Katra itself.)

No electronic equipment is allowed because of security reasons. Yatris must make their own arrangements for the same.

At the main Bhawan place, cloak room services are available free of cost. Two cloak rooms are open 24x7 for the devotees. A cloak room is also situated exactly opposite to the main queue complex (gate No.1). Shoes, belts and other items are to be deposited in the cloak room itself. There is one more cloak room in Sridhar Bhawan. Before proceeding for the darshans, devotees can submit their bags over here only. As a suggestion, do not carry important documents and cash or cards in the luggage. Cloak rooms can be used for free.
