I am talking about the main bhawan complex Prakaant. Open the web site https://www.maavaishnodevi.org, click on online services, login, click Room Reservations, select any date and click check availability. You will be able to see the rooms which are booked for Main bhawan complex in Gauri and Vaishnavi Bhawan (which are at bhawan). These rooms are available 30 days prior at 12'0 Clock.

MK also please note that you will be able to book only 1 room in a calender month. So try and book the 4 bedded room...

Thank you for bringing this to my notice, but I beg to state that Vaishnavi Bhawan and Gouri Bhawan is located at a distance of around 1 kilometer from Main Bhawan Complex, while coming from Saanjhi Chhat to Bhawan.

You will find the mention of Main Bhawan Complex in the online booking list, when the booking starts there. The room rent was Rs 800/- when they stopped booking the rooms.

Though they have mentioned on the official website that
Quote:
This can be done by sending a Demand Draft of the requisite amount in the name of Chief Executive Officer Shri Mata Vaishno Devi Shrine Board, Katra payable at Katra ...
But this facility is not available at present.

Also please visit this page where there is mention of room rents in Main Bhawan Complex.

See the screen shot below:

Angry Rooms booking fraud even at Vaishnodevi! Maa save us all

Dear Sir,
Total rooms at Bhavan are around 100 but hardly 15 rooms are thrown open for booking on website for poor general public!

I have myself spent many a sleepless nights (booking starts at 00.00 hrs) before being finally able to book one for myself.

Weird thing is, though itís shown full even within a minute of midnight, I have seen several times the same rooms available throughout the day later!

So the question for SMVDSB is:

1. Are you keeping bulk of rooms to favour your own/ sell in black to needy persons?

2. Are your own agents busy cornering rooms at midnight and when they find there are no takers, you release the rooms later?

God Bless Vaishnodevi Board and all devotees.

Jai Mata Di and God save Vaishnodevi Board.

Ofcourse there is no problem in sharing the process. Its always better to share in public as many users will benefit from it

The process is not difficult it just needs the correct timing. You need to book the room 30 days in advance and in the night exact at 00:00 hours. If you are able to login exact 30 days before the booking date and at 00:00 hours you will be able to book a room. You can try this at 00:00 hrs today and you will be able to book a room for 30th September 2012.

I booked a room yesterday for my trip in September end.

Thanks,
Tarun

Vaishnavi Bhawan is around 1 and a half km from Bhawan. Rooms are okay but first you should check the room before getting in...

They don't charge anything for kids below 10 years.

There was no need of contacting any body. You should have done local arrangement on arrival.

I will be moving towards Srinagar from Vaishno devi.I would like to know whether it will be safe to stay in Houseboat with 3 and 5 year old kids along with my mother or should I stay in the Hotel only all through the tour.Although if I am staying in a Houseboat it will be for one night only.Any Houseboat experience Prakaant.
Thanks

Though we do not like to stay in houseboats, there are Forum members who have stayed there and have consented to stay there for a day or two.

This is 'holy' s**t (pun intended)
Even dormitory can not be online for bhawan and Sanjhichat rooms are also not available 30 days before.
