MAAMARA CAVE ( MANGO TREE CAVE ) This cave is situated before Virupaksha cave. Once there was big mango tree near the cave which has fallen down and there is no mango tree now. There is a Shiva shrine called Sri Mahaeswarar and Sri Kasi Annapoorani shrine. Inside the cave we have to kneeled down and go. Bhagavan Ramana maharishi stayed for a while in this cave.
Hanuman with his monkey army was at the guard of cave entrance, where Vaishno Devi was meditating for nine months, before she came out of cave. There is a stream called Ban Ganga ( Ban literally means an arrow ), where Devi used her arrow to take out a stream of water from the hill, to quench the thirst of Hanuman when he became thirsty. Hanuman also fought with Bhairavnath before Vaishno Devi asked him to leave Bhairavnath to her.
