    Don't be cheated by fake saffron sellers

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Many people sell fake saffron for a high price. Especially on the roads you will find small boys pleading with you to buy various spices and herbs. They will even claim to show you the test for genuine saffron by mixing it in water and that it dissolves.However most often it is fake saffron. Do not buy unless you are an expert. It is better to buy it in reputed shops like Subash Dry fruit shop in the Jammu road.

    hotels-dont buy prasad frm Katra

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    you will find alot of people who will say please buy prasad from us we'll provide you a room to freshen up and rest after you return,they will make you purchase prasad worth 500 rupees and when you return from the yatra there will be no rooms for you.So please be ware you need ot carry prasad frm Katra there are two places near the shrine from where you can buy the prasad.You need not buy shwals for Mata as all these things are not allowed so it will be sheer waste of money.

    Unique Suggestions: Again i suggest reconfirm details with hotel people in case you have taken this offer..if they will not provide you with room,make sure to inform them you'll take them to the police.

    BEWARE OF HOTEL -mostly for indian tourist

    mostly when u chk in at a hotel the hotel owners will say you can freshen up in one of the rooms and leave the bags which we do not require in their lockers(though the bags are safe in the lockers or a store rooms)beware and recheck with them that they will keep one room for you when you return,most of the hotel owners will inform you when you return no such agreement took place.The change paid by you before you left for the yatra is for freshning up only.If they cheat you pls be on a safe side to confirm before you make payment and inform them you'll lodge an fir against them the' will settle it with you.It happened with me twice they will promise to keep a room for you and later deny.

    Unique Suggestions: Once you take a room confirm with them this room is solely for your purpose and in case they will not allow you to lock it inform them there should be one room empty when you return.
    make it a point to take it in writing fron the staff.
