About Vaishno Devi

The holy shrine of Shri Mata Vaishno Devi also known as Trikuta, Mata Rani, and Vaishnavi, located at folds of the holy cave of Trikuta Mountain (a three peaked mountain) in the state of Jammu and Kashmir. This temple is dedicated to Mata Vaishno, a manifestation of Hindu Goddess of wealth and fortune- Goddess Mahalaxmi. We all have heard about the greatness of this temple, probably from electronic, or print media and word of mouth or we have grown up with our elders having this wish of paying at least one visit to this temple, once in their lifetimes. Millions of devotees from around the world head to this temple every year. It is believed that if you offer prayers to Mata Vaishnodevi at her holy cave while making a wish, it will come true! Goddess Vaishnavi is said to fulfill all humble “muradein” or wishes of her children or devotees. But for that, there is little hard work you have to do, the trails that lead to Trikuta aren’t very easy. This cave is at an elevation of 5200 feet and pilgrims take on a 12-kilometer trek from base camp at Katra.

Historical Context: This Holy Cave is situated in 5200ft. According to geological study the cave is almost one million year old.
