Blanketed by an atmosphere of peace and calm, the Vaishno Devi Temple has turned into one of the most sought after religious places in Kullu. All temples here are multi-storied, and Lord Shiva temple is well placed between the Mountain. The main temple that appears like a cave is beautifully carved inside with life facility.
