Mythology of Vaishno Mata

The temple of Mata Vaishno Devi is quite ancient. Mata Vaishno Devi is believed to have incarnated as Mata Parvati, Saraswati and Lakshmi in Treta Yuga as a beautiful princess for the welfare of mankind. And did penance in a cave on Trikuta mountain. When the time came, his body merged into a subtle form of three divine energies- Mahakali, Mahalakshmi and Mahasaraswati.

It is believed that mata spent nine months in this cave, just like a baby lives in its mother's womb. Here Mata Vaishno Devi was hiding from Bhairon Nath for 9 months. For this reason it is called Garbhajun Cave and over the years it has been believed that women who enter this cave never face any problem during childbirth.
Jai Mata Di !

Bhakta Sridhar Katha

It is said that the Vaishno Devi temple was built around 700 years ago by a Brahmin priest, Pandit Sridhar. Devotees of Mata who lived about seven centuries ago. Sridhar and his wife were completely devoted to the Devi. Once Sridhar got an order to have a bhandara in his dream. But Sridhar was worried about how he would organize this event due to poor financial condition. Worrying about which they stayed up all night. And then left it all to luck. In the morning, people started coming there to receive the prasad. After which he saw that a small girl in the form of Vaishno Devi had come to his hut. Bhandara was prepared with them and served to the villagers, after accepting this prasad, people got satisfaction.

Bhairavnath demanded to eat non-veg but there a little girl in the form of Vaishno Devi refused on behalf of Sridhar. After which Bhairavnath could not bear this humiliation and Bhairon tried to capture the divine girl, but failed to do so. The girl disappeared, after this incident Sridhar became sad.

He longed to see his devi. After which one night, Vaishno Mata appeared in Sridhar's dream and showed him the way to a cave on the Trikut Parvat, which houses his ancient temple. Sridhar, as told, discovered the holy shrine and devoted his life to his service. Since then, this temple came to be known worldwide as Mata Vaishno Devi.
