Vaishno Devi Temple has been reopened to tourists from 16th August 2020. Only 2000 pilgrims are allowed to visit the shrine per day. Of these, 1900 pilgrims will be from Jammu & Kashmir and the remaining 100 from outside the union territory. The registration for Vaishno Devi Yatra can only be done online as Yatra Registration Counters still remain closed. The pilgrims coming from the red zones have to undergo a compulsory Covid-19 test. Those with negative reports are allowed to move ahead to Bhawan. Vaishno Devi Temple has been nearly 5 months after it was closed due to Covid-19.
