How Was the Holy Cave of Mata Vaishno Devi Discovered?


  1. Around 1000 years back, by a Pandit named Shridhar, organized a Bhandara.
  2. Mata left amidst the Bhandara to escape Bhairon Nath.
  3. Pandit Shridhar  felt as if he had lost everything in his life.
  4. He felt immense grief and gave up the intake of food or even water and closed himself in a room of his house
  5. He started praying for Mata Vaishnavi to reappear.
  6. It is then that Mata Vaishnavi appeared in his vision (dream) and told him to search for her at the Holy Cave situated amidst the folds of the Trikuta Mountain.
  7. She showed him the way to the Holy Cave and insisted him to break his fast.
  8. Pandit Shridhar then went on to discover the Holy Cave in the mountains.
  9. Mata Vaishno Devi appeared before him in all her glory and introduced him to the three heads the rock form along with various other identification marks in the Holy Cave.
  10. She blessed him with a boon of four sons and a right to worship her manifestation and asked him to spread the glory of the Holy Shrine all over.
