MATA VAISHNODEVI MANDIR The Goddess of Trikuta parvat


It is situated at 5300 feet MSL- A sacred spot! A sure resort of beatitude!! The journey's end!!! Before entering, yatris have to wade through a small stream, called Charan Ganga. The place where the image is installed and worshipped is small, but well illumined. The hall in-front is spacious enough to accommodate hundreds of pilgrims. Yatris are admitted in lines well regulated. The long unending queues of yatris jostling and chanting greet the MOTHER at long last seated on a high pedestal well decorated. The beautiful image of the MOTHER in floral decoration feasts the eyes, but for a fleeting second, like the darsan of Sri Balaji at Tirumala, where several kinds of hardships faced during the days of journey and thousands of rupees spent on everything end in a split second. Though the darsan ends in a flash, in that flash itself, the MOTHER sees the supplicant from top to toe, and knows what he requires and when it has to be granted. After offering prayers with breaking of coconuts, the yatris move slowly kissing the damp chiselled walls, desiring to partaking the divinity embedded in all parts of that holiest of holy place. The yatris as they emerge hail the MOTHER with faces wreathed in smiles,
hearts going heavenwards and souls overflowing with inexplicable bliss. And with red-scarves over their heads a practice observed here by every pilgrim. Another object of adoration is the Siva Lingam embedded into the cave wall, facing the MOTHER'S image. Paying obeisance to Lord Maheswar, they finally come out.
