Shri Mata Vaishno Devi Shrine is one of the most popular pilgrimage destinations in India. Millions of people in and outside our country derive solace and strength from this Holy place.
Vaishno Devi is a manifestation of the Hindu Goddess Mata Adi Shakti. The words "Maa" and "Mata" are commonly used in India for "mother", and thus are often heavily used in connection with Vaishno Devi. The Holy Cave of the Mother is situated at an altitude of 5200 ft. The yatris (pilgrims to holy places in Hinduism) have to undertake a trek of nearly 12 km from the base camp at Katra. At the culmination of their pilgrimage, they are blessed with the Darshans of the Mother Goddess inside the Sanctum Sanctorum (the Holy Cave). These Darshans are in the shape of three natural rocks. Each rock is representative of MahaSaraswati, MahaLakshmi and Mahadevi. This shrine is lovingly called 'Vaishno Devi', where lakhs of devotees throng every year.
Since the year 1986, when the Shri Mata Vaishno Devi Shrine Board (commonly called Shrine Board) was formed, the management of the Shrine and regulation of the Yatra has been vested in the Board.
