Vaishno Devi Shrine Takes Action to Preserve Sanctity Amid Dress Code Violations
According to the report, the requirement that visitors to Vaishno Devi Bhawan wear proper clothing has been in place for a while, but it has never been strictly enforced. The Shrine Board (Shri Mata Vaishno Devi Shrine Board) has now made the decision to take strong action in this regard in light of the occurrence where some persons turned Vaishno Devi Bhawan into a place of fun and picnic. Under this, people are urged to dress modestly and visit for Maa Durga’s darshan. If you’re also visiting Vaishno Devi, make sure to follow the dress code by dressing appropriately.
