History of VatikashaktipeethThe Glorified history of Vatika Shaktipeeth at its Silver Jubilee Year
The Vatika village is located at 25 km away from Jaipur, the pink city of Rajasthan, the heart of the country, which is known as Gayatri Shaktipeeth Vatika. From the olden days, this place has been known as a center of culture & religion, which has maintained its glory even toady. Shri Bansidhar Machiwal, who was a dear disciple of Gurudev Shriram Sharma, donated his house in charity and by doing endless labour, having courage, dedication to the mission, got the Shaktipeeth constructed in a very short period of 10 days only. On 9August, 1980, Shri Banshidharji arranged to get the Bhoomi Pujan of this Shaktipeeth by the hands of a religious couple Smt. Ramjanki & Shri Bhorilalji Baraya (Vaidhya). The idol of Gayatrimata in the form of Ved Mata & Vishwamata was founded by the sacred hands of Yug Rishi Taponisht Pt Shriram Sharma himself. At that time the saga of vision, Yug Rishi Pujya Gurudev, had assured and blessed Banshidharji by saying that: Banshidhar, your horse will run fast. From that date this center is leading toward progress and trying to eradicate additictions and the evil customs from the society.
