Around four lakh pilgrims are expected to visit the Mata Vaishno Devi shrine atop Trikuta hills in Reasi district of Jammu and Kashmir during the upcoming Navratra festival, and adequate security arrangements have been made for the devotees, officials said on Saturday.

In 2017 and 2018, the number of pilgrims who visited the shrine during the Navaratras was 3.07 lakh and 3.2 lakh respectively.

According to the shrine board officials, about 12 kg of gold, 1,200 kg of copper and 1,100 kg of silver have been used in the construction of the gate.
