MY GRANDMOTHER’S DREAM


In the year 1998, my grandfather died. After that, my grandmother worked very hard to brought up my mother. My grandmother’s dream was to visit a pilgrimage. So we decided to take her to a few religious places. At first we selected Vaishnodevi Mandir. Our trip started on 15th July 2018 at 6am by the train Rajdhani Express. The next day we reached Delhi on 10:30 am and on the same day we had another train for Katra to visit Vaishnodevi temple at 4:30 pm. Distance between Delhi and Katra is 577 km. So by next day we reached Katra. The place was very beautiful because it is in Jammu and was surrounded by hills. Then we checked in a pre-booked hotel. The next day we went to vaishnodevi temple. It is situated on the hills at an altitude of 5200 ft. Shree Maata Vaishnodevi Ji resides in a holy cave located in the foals of the three peaked mountain named ‘’Trikuta’’. The holy cave attracts millions of devotees every year. The devotees have to undertake a trek of nearly 12 km from the Katra. But my grandmother could not be able to trek so we decided to took tickets of helicopter for half of the road and that was available. The helicopter dropped us at ‘Sanjichhat’ helipad from where the temple is located at a distance of 2km. As we reached the mandir it was already 8:00pm.After that we took a bath and went inside the mandir for darshan. After darshan we stayed in a pre booked guest house and the next day at the early morning 5:00 am, we came down from the hill and this time we took ponies. The easiest and fastest way to reach there is helicopter but people can choose palkies, ponies and battery car also. The next day we return back to delhi. On 20th July we went to Mathura to visit the Prem Mandir by car which is famous for Radha Krishna’s eternal love. The temple structure was established by the 5th Jagadguru kripalu maharaj. Figures of lord Krishna and his followers depicting important events are surrounded to cover the main temple. The next day on 21st we went to Rishikesh. Rishikesh is famous Lakshman Jhoola a hanging bridge. It is said that lord Lakshman cross the river Ganga with two jute ropes. After that we came to Haridwar to see the Ganga aarti at the banks of the river Ganga which is called ‘’Harkipori’’. On 22nd July we went back to Guwahati from Delhi. Our flight was at 4:30 pm. It was a wonderful trip with my grandmother. She was really satisfied. She was very happy as her dreams come true.
