Snowfall in Mata Vaishno Devi strike
JAMMU, Dec 4: Pilgrims witnessed the first snowfall at the world famous Mata Vaishno Devi Shrine on the Trikuta hills near Katra, even as the entire region continued to reel under intense cold wave.
"There were heavy rains at the Shrine last evening before it started snowing on the upper reaches. Bhairon Ghati is covered with snow", said a police official at the Bhawan.
While the upper reaches experienced snowfall, the lower areas of the region witnessed heavy rains since yesterday, thereby bringing the day temperature down to 17.2 degrees Celsius, 6.1 degrees below normal, according to the Met sources.
Although people here preferred to stay indoors, there was, however, not much difference in the number of pilgrims reaching the holy cave Shrine to pay obeisance, they added.
Reports said, famous hill resort of Patnitop also witnessed season's first snowfall.
