The nestling in the hills of Trikuta to a size of 1,700 mt is the sacred cave shrine of Vaishno Devi, the mother goddess. At a distance of 61 km from Jammu, the cave is 30 meters long and just one-and-a-half meters high. At the end of the cave tombs are devoted to the three forms of the goddess mother – Mahakali, Mahalakshmi and Mahasarasvati. The pilgrims must enter in small groups through a narrow opening and walk through the icy waters to reach the tombs. According to legend, the goddess mother hid in the cave while escaping a demon, she was finally killed. The tomb of Vaishno Devi is approached by Katra, which lies 13 kilometers east of the tomb and the basis for the pilgrimage. From Katra, pilgrims set up a kilometer Banganga, where the goddess is supposed to have stopped drinking water, six kilometers other is the tomb of Ardhkunwari cavern, where it believes it has meditated for nine months. The last stop before the real tomb is the Bhawan, where there are arrangements for washing and changing, and housing for luggage and valuable applicants.
