Abstract
Jammu, also known as “City of Temples” is blessed to have Mata Vaishno Devi’s holy cave in its Katra town. Mata Vaishno Devi holy pilgrimage is one of the major and most important pilgrimage destinations in Jammu. Katra town draws an enormous amount of devotees from the entire world. Mostly these places are small towns with very less domicile population who experience a huge number of floating population in different months of the year which puts a virtuous amount of pressure on the local natural resources which further results as dilapidation of the ecological settings. This paper debates that substantial deviations in balance occurrence and atmosphere of such visits reproduce different problems on the environs of sanctified locations. Using a case study of the holy town of Katra, a famous Mata Vaishno Devi Hindu pilgrimage at Katra in Jammu tries to search instrumental connections among various issues which gives character to form the environment in the pilgrimage destinations.
