Vaishno Devi Temple in Haridwar

The temple enshrines the idols of three prominent Hindu deities namely Goddess Lakshmi, Goddess Kali and Goddess Saraswati. The Hindus believe that those who garner their faith in Vaishno Devi are blessed by her and their wishes are fulfilled.

Inside Vaishno Devi Temple

The divine Vaishno Devi temple is one among many temples that align on the Sapt Rishi Ashram road. Akin to the Vaishno Devi temple in terms of its architecture and tunnels, this temple does not bear any other similarity. If you cannot make your pilgrimage to Vaishno Devi in J & K then this temple is an absolute bliss for you. 

The devotees have to climb the floors, crawl through a narrow man-made tunnel to pay obeisance to Maa Vaishno Devi. One can also see the replica of 12 ‘Jyotirlingas’ of Lord Shiva here. The temple also celebrates auspicious Hindu festivals like Kumbh Mela, Basant Panchami, Makar Sankranti, Ganga Dussehra etc. with great fervour.

Best Time to Visit

Since Haridwar is nestled on the banks of Ganges, summers are hot and humid here, so the best time to visit the temple would be between October-March. The Vaishno Devi temple remains open for the devotees from 8:00 am to 8:00 pm. on all days
