Weather Information
Katra town is located at an altitude of nearly 2500 ft above sea level while the sanctum sanctorum is located at nearly 5200 ft. above sea level. There is obviously a significant temperature difference between the two locations. A reference to the temperature of Katra town alone may thus be misleading, for, even at the height of summer, the Bhawan area may be considerably cool. For this purpose, a chart outlining the broad range of summer/winter temperatures at both Katra and Bhawan is outlined below. The temperature figures are merely indicative and actual values may vary from year to year. Nevertheless, these values are meant to give the pilgrims a fair idea of the temperature range and to plan their yatra and clothing requirements accordingly.
