"Needs staff to guide devotees"

  • 7.00/7
  • Posted Oct 27, 2013
We had superb experience going to Mata Vaishno Devi Temple. We had one room booked in the Bhawans. After reaching there we freshened up and went to the darshan. There was such a heavy crowd. There were people from all the strata of society.There was only one problem and that was there were no staff to either guide the people or neither there was any type of announcments for the devotees. Otherwise everything was well in order

Mata Vaishno Devi Temple is one of the holiest pilgrimage sites for Hindus, which is positioned at an elevation of 5,200 ft in the Katra district. The shrine is a cave temple, dedicated to Goddess Shakti in the form of three natural rock formations, called the Pindis that represent the three goddesses. These are Goddess Lakshmi, Goddess Kali and Goddess Saraswati and are positioned at a distance of 91 ft inside the cave.

The temple is located on Trikuta, a three-peaked mountain that is around 12 km from the base of the mountain. It is believed that the temple is nearly a million year old. The holy cave of Vaishno Devi is 98 ft long and has symbols of various Gods and Goddesses of Hindu mythology.

On the mouth of the cave, there is a rock symbol of Vakratunda Ganesha. Along with the Ganesha symbol, the symbols of Surabaya Dec and Chandler Dec are also carved in the temple.

According to the legend, Bhairav Nath, an evil was beheaded by the Goddess at the entry point to the holy cave. The rock formations along with sites of Dhaka and Laundry Beer are the chief attractions of the cave.
