Why is it important to Bhairon Nath Temple after visiting Vaishno Devi Temple?
Bhairon Nath, a sage was invited for a feast by Shridhar, a devotee of Vaishno Devi along with other 365 other people. Bhairon Nath was fascinated by the unearthly powers of the Vaishno Devi, in the form of a girl.
Bhairon Nath searched for her continuously for nine months. Later, he found her drinking water by shooting a stone. Vaishno Devi realized the presence of Bhairon Nath. She entered a cave to escape from his eyes, yet he was following her. Vaishno Devi moved out of the cave by destroying the left wall of the cave with Trident.
Then, she took her real form and cut the head of Bhairon Nath. Bhairon Nath asked for forgiveness from Vaishno Devi. The Devi not only forgave him but blessed him that the pilgrimage to Vaishno Devi will not be accomplished without the visit to Bhairon Nath Temple.
So, it is a must to go to Bhairon Nath after visiting Maa Vaishno Devi Temple.
