At a distance of 3.5 km from Kullu, 36.5 km from Manali and 19 km from Naggar, Mata Vaishno Maha Devi Tirth is located on Kullu-Manali National Highway No. 21.

Mahadevi Tirth named after Goddess Parvati is situated on the banks of Beas River. A small cave here enshrines an idol of goddess Vaishno Devi. An idol of Goddess Durga is installed here. This magnificent temple was built in the year 1966 by a saint named Swami Sewak Das Ji Maharaj. The foundation of Mahadevi Tirth was laid in 1962 when Swami Sewak Das ji Maharaj in search of eternal peace came to this place and found Mahadevi's abode in the mountains.

After Swami Sewak Das ji's death, Vaishno Devi Temple is managed by Sharda Sewa Sungh. A Lord Shiva Temple is also present in the complex. The management runs a free langar and a saraye for pilgrims to stay overnight. The surroundings radiate a serene and peaceful atmosphere.

The River Beas flowing by the side of the Vaishno Devi temple is an added attraction. An acupressure treatment centre also operates within the temple complex at free of cost.
