Vaishno Devi is a temple town that's home to the famous
Vaishno Devi Mandir. Popularly known as Mata Rani, Vaishnavi and Trikuta,
Vaishno Devi is a manifestation of the Hindu Goddess Durga. Located in Trikuta
hills, 13 kms from Katra (in the union territory of Jammu and Kashmir); this
renowned shrine allures millions of devotees from all over the world. It is
believed that during the pooja and aarti, Goddesses arrive at the Holy cave to
pay their respect to Mata Rani. Devotees believe goddess herself calls the
devotees to reach here.
Vaishno Devi is said to be Moonh Maangi Muradein Poori Karne
Wali Mata (the mother who fulfils the wishes of her children). The darshan of
Maa Vaishno Devi in the holy cave is in the form of three naturally formed
rocks which are known as pindies. These pindies manifest the three forms of the
goddess as Maha Kali, Maha Saraswati and Maha Lakshmi. More than one crore
devotees visit Vaishno Devi temple each year.
