  CHARANPADUKA - VAISHNODEVI MANDIR

This holy kshetra bearing the Mother Vaishnodevi's foot prints is a small shrine to which devotees doming from far off offer prayers with intense devotional favour. This small but sublime temple is built at the exact stopping of Mother on her hurried march to her present cave temple. Most pilgrims starting their journey by walk from Darshani Darwaza halt at this point to avail the darsan of the holy foot prints of Mother. Their fatigue too gets relief and by worshipping here for a while they recuperate their stamina miraculously as a matter of fact. This icon gorgeously decorated feasts the eyes and enhances their faith with her sublime smiling visage. It is invariably visited and enthusiastically adored by all the pilgrims both on their way up and on return journey down to Katra. The Mother, it is said stopped here when chased by Bhairon, the dreadful demon to see whether he was still following and if so what distance lies between the persuer and persued. Regular worship is offered daily.

It lies on the way to cave temple of Mata Vaishnodevi and accessible on foot from Katra only.
