Vaishnodevi Temple

Vaishnodevi Temple

Introduction


Nestled between the folds of the Trikuta Hills, 56 kms. to the north of Jammu, the Shrine of Vaishno Devi Ji has been an abode of worship for the pilgrims since ages. The holy Shrine of Mata Vaishno Devi Ji is unique as it contains the holiest of holy Pindis manifesting Mata in her three forms i.e. Maha Kali, Maha Lakshmi, Maha Saraswati. Each form represents a particular attribute.

To reach this hilly abode of Durga, a devotee has to make his first halt at Katra,a town situated at foothill around 1,700 feet above the sea level. Katra is the winter capital of Jammu and Kashmir and is 50Kms. away from Jammu. From this halt, a devotee has to traverse a distance of 13 Kms. covering a vertical height of 3,500 feet to reach to the Mata Vaishno Devi's cave temple either on foot or on horseback or in palanquines.

Devotees can rely on this holy town for accomodation of their choice, as well as the articles of offerings, they wish to offer at the feet of Mata Vaishno Devi.
