Vaishnodevi token and others
« on: October 17, 2011, 07:55:24 PM »
I got these two tokens in the mail today from Akola India.  I know one is a Vaishnodevi but that is the extent of my knowledge.
Any information and comments welcome!

Dear Sir,

This Vaishnodevi token is minted every year for the devotees who visit there and only one piece is given each member who visit you cant get extra even you pay more.

Vaishno Devi Mandir is one of the holy Hindu temples dedicated to Shakti, located in the hills of Vaishno Devi, Jammu and Kashmir, India. In Hinduism, Vaishno Devi, also known as Mata Rani and Vaishnavi, is a manifestation of the Mother Goddess.

The topic is already on our WOC board post by aan09 on March 12, 2011, 01:55:12 PM

Looking at second scan, I can see that it's a dated token! 26.3.99. Wow, I have never seen a temple token with complete date!

Since the date is written in English, it should be 26th March 1999. In the Indian Calander, we use the name of the month and not numbers.
