in Pimpri. This temple is a replica of the Vaishnodevi temple located at
the Katra village in Jammu and Kashmir. It was built in just 90 days in
the year 1993. Vaishnodevi is also called, 'Jai Mata Di'. It is said that
this deity fulfils all your desires.
Huge bare rocks and a couple of coconut trees in between are seen to the left of the temple which set an example of how one can grow in unfavourable conditions also-only if one decides to. There is a spring that adds to the scenic beauty of the temple. The inner part of the temple is hexagonal in shape and the walls are covered with a variety of beautiful pictures. In order to see the Devi, one has to crawl through a small cave. There is an almost-live spring in the cave, which automatically washes your feet clean before you reach the Devi, to touch her feet.
