Bengaluru: To spread more awareness about epics like Ramayana and Mahabharata, the Jammu and Kashmir administrator is planning to set up a theme park near the Vaishno Devi temple. It will come up in Reasi district and it is looking for investment.
Apart from it, the Katra Theme Park will combine education and entertainment and Kashmir's economic development, which aims to take a different route, reports Times Now.
With an investment of Rs 500 crore and a partner like Disney, the park is likely to generate employment opportunities.
The legend behind Vaishno Devi:
A legend has it that when the earth was full of wicked demons, goddesses Saraswati, Lakshmi and Kali decided to combine all their energies. That is when Vaishno Devi took birth, an eight-armed goddess.
With her robust might, she killed demons on earth. But the goddesses pleaded with her to stay back on earth, so that she could continue to rein in terror.
Legend further has it that she performed intense austerities to get Lord Vishnu as her husband. When the Lord appeared before her as Lord Rama, he informed her that he was already married. But he promised her that he would return in a disguised form, after rescuing Mother Sita. And when he returned incognito, in the form of an old man, Vaishno Devi failed to recognise him.
However, he promised her that he would marry her when he would return as Kalki, the 10th avatar of Lord Vishnu.
