Holy Way: – Old Way

Prior to the construction of the Shrine Board before 30 August 1949 it was very difficult to reach the temple. At that time there was no paved road in the way of the temple and had to go through big stones to the Vaishno court. Since the formation of the Shrine Board, the roads were widened and paved roads were constructed, the railings were arranged, the large aisles were cut and made accessible to the devotees.

Earlier all the people either used the stairs or it was not easy to walk because of the horses. Now people can walk comfortably on this road and complete their yatra.

In the first journey, devotees did not have a drinkable water system, people used to drink water from the waterfalls. Now 120 water tanks have been installed by the Shrine Board for drinking water throughout the road and cold pani water coolers have been installed at 20 places.

Earlier there was not a single light illumination on the entire track, now light has been provided for the devotees on the entire track. Very good work has been done.
