Description

Apart from Ahmedabad's historic monuments the people of Gujarat have also established temples that create an aura of divinity and serenity. One such temple is the Vaishnodevi Temple.

Vaishnodevi Temple of Ahmedabad is a true replica of the original Vaishno Devi temple of Jammu Kashmir and satiates the quest of devotees seeking a pilgrimage to the sacred Hindu temple. To give a real feel of the environment of the sacred temple, it has been set above a mock hill.

A man made stone hill made out of yellow sandstone is in a circular shape that houses several beautiful carvings and sculptures of gods and goddess. Pilgrims have to go through the man made hill to reach the main shrine located at the top of the hill.

Built by an individual trust is situated on Vaishnodevi circle on the Sarkhej Gandhinagar Highway.

The sacred temple 50 feet in diameter has been built within the premises of the mountains. Presiding deity of the temple is Goddess Vaishno Devi, a manifestation of Goddess Durga. A glorious temple surrounded by sprawling garden is often visited by several devotees. It houses a 1350 sq feet hall that can accommodate around 5000 people.
