Vaishno Devi Mandir , located in the hill of Vaishno Devi, Jammu and Kashmir, India. In Hinduism, Vaishno Devi, also known as Mata Rani and Vaishnavi, is a manifestation of the Mother Goddess.
The temple is near the town of Katra, in Udhampur district in the state of Jammu and Kashmir,. It is one of the most revered places of worship in Northern India. The shrine is at an altitude of 5200 feet and a distance of approximately 12 kilometres (7.45 miles) from Katra. Million of pilgrims visit the temple every year and is the second most visited religious shrine in India, after Tirupati Balaji Mandir. The Shri Mata Vaishno Devi Shrine Board maintains the shrine. A rail link from Udhampur to Katra is being built to facilitate pilgrimage.

The Vaishno Devi yatra is probably the most hallowed pilgrimage of Northern India and attracts over five million devotees a year. It entails a 13.5 km trek from Katra, which in turn is 50 km from Jammu. All pilgrims are required to get passes at Katra for the yatra. The best time to visit is between March and July. And the yatra season is between March - April and September - October. People mostly go for the yatra during these seasons. It is situated at an altitude of 1,700m. The abode of the goddess is in the mountains of Trikuta Hills, in the state of Jammu and Kashmir in north India. The Goddess resides in a beautiful cave in the form of three 'Pindis' in the name of, "Maha Kali", "Maha Laxmi" and "Maha Sarawati". According to legends Goddess Durga has killed the demon Bhairon here. The cave is situated at a height of 1,700m. The cave is 30m in length and 1.5m in height.
