Vaishno Devi Temple

Vaishno Devi shrine is located in a holy cave called Bhawan or Darbar and consists of three natural rock formations called Pindies, representing Goddess Kali, Goddess Lakshmi and Goddess Saraswati, symbolizing destructive, preservative and creative characters of the Mother Goddess.

Vaishno Devi mata is believed to be a unique manifestation of the collective spiritual strengths of all three deities and is revered world-over by millions of devotees who flock around to seek her divine blessings. While a few come praying for the fulfillment of their wishes, the others come to thank Vaishno Devi Mata for having answered their prayers.

Water at the feet of the shrine, popularly called ‘Charan Ganga’ is believed to be holy and is even carried home by devotees in small containers.

Vaishno Devi yatra is considered to be complete only after a visit to the shrine dedicated to Bhairon which is at a further distance of 2.5km from Bhawan.
