Vaishnodevi Temple, Ahmedabad Overview

Located along the Sarkhej Gandhinagar Highway, also known as the Vaishnodevi Circle, the Vaishnodevi Temple is a stone-built place of worship. The temple architecture is a deep carve of about 50 feet in diameter into an artificial rock. Citing a 1350-square-feet hall, the temple can house about 5000 devotees at a time.

Mirroring the Vaishnodevi temple in Katra, Jammu and Kashmir, the Vaishnodevi Temple in Ahmedabad is a smaller version of the original. It is dedicated to Vaishnodevi, an avatar of the Hindu female deity of Maa Durga. The heads of three other Hindu goddess idols, Lakshmi, Kali and Saraswati along with a Shaiva shrine are installed within the temple.
