Mata Shrine Board information about Pindies 
For all those Yatris who are visiting Mata Vaishno Devi for the first time it is important to know that the Darshan is in the form of three natural rocks known as Pindies. These are referred to be the Maa Kali, Maa Lakshmi and Maa Sarswati. There is no statue of Mata Vaishno Devi and she is worshiped in the form of these Pindies. Around 25-30 thousand devotees reach the Holy Shrine each day, so the time for Darshan is limited for each pilgrim and you should concentrate for the Holy Pindies only while taking the Darshan.
