  • AMBAJI TEMPLE

    This is the principal shrine of a goddess who has been worshiped since the pre-Vedic period. She is often referred to as ArasuriAmba, named for the location of the temple in the Arasur hills, near the source of the Saraswatiriver at the south-western end of the Aravali mountain range.

    The red flag above the small temple dances welcomingly in the wind. Made of white marble with gold cones, the temple was originally built by Nagar Brahmins. There is a main entrance in the front and only a small side-door, because it is believed that Mataji (another name for Ambaji) has forbidden the addition of any other door. The temple is surrounded by an open square called chacharchowk where ceremonial sacrifices called havans are performed.

    The ecstatic festival of Navratri is celebrated all over Gujarat in reverence of Ambaji, by dancing garba around the Holy Mother. On these nine nights the Nayak and Bhojok communities also perform bhavaitheater.

    Ambaji temple is open all days of the week, 7:15-11:30am, 12-4:15pm, 6:30-9pm.

    There are six other temples in Ambaji: Varahi Mata, AmbikeshwarMahadev and Ganapati temples are in the chacharchowk, open square, surrounding the temple, while Khodiyar Mata, Ajaya Mata and Hanumanji temples are in the village.

    GABBAR

    Gabbar (or Gabbargadh), a small hillock about four km to the west of Ambaji village, is believed to have been the original seat of the goddess, the site of Krishna's tonsorial ceremony (ritual head-shaving), and the abode of the divine Mahishasur-Mardini.

    The hill is very steep and difficult to climb. There are 300 stone steps at the foot of the hill after which the pilgrims have to climb through a narrow dangerous track. On the flat top of the hill there is a small niche facing the temple of Ambaji, in which a well-protected lamp is kept constantly burning, and can be seen from the main Ambaji temple at night. There are footprints of the Goddess under a pipal tree, which are worshipped.

    MODHERA SUN TEMPLE

    As one traverses the length and breadth of Gujarat, one constantly stumbles across architectural legacies of the' Solanki' rule. You keep coming across, living spaces and monuments of another time, offering an eclectic glimpse of the artistic and ingenious beauty that makes this exotically state vibrant.A soothing drive amidst green farmlands just 35 km away from Mehsana on the way to the temples of goddess Bahucharaji reposes the village of Modhera. Set along the backdrop of River Pushpavati, surrounded by a terra-formed garden of flowering trees and songs of birds, rests the famed Sun temple of Modhera.

    The exclusively carved temple complex and the magnificently sculpted kund are jewels in the art of masonry of the Solanki period apparently which was also known as the Golden Age of Gujarat. Savor your voyage through time to the magnificent eons of the Golden period as you get welcomed personally by the life like icons, narrating stories and legends of Modhera!

    Modhera is an ideal destination for being away from the hustle-bustle of city life for a day. The unruffled peaceful landscape and the majestically welcoming temple complex will ensure to take you away from the mundane routines of daily life to the glorious times back in the Golden Age.

    Twelve months. It is believed that these 'Adityas' are the base myth to the temple of sun, the legend imparts Aditya's to be sons of 'Aditi', the goddess of Infinity and the constant within the inter-connectedness of the universe.

    After witnessing and traveling across time with the raconteur figurines, a visit to the Garbagruha will definitely feel as a spiritual experience. The statue of the sun god no longer exists and the SuryavanshiSolanki's have been scattered into the dust of history since a thousand years but still on the day of the Equinox, one can almost hear the chanting of the prayers, the aroma of incense, the tinkling of bells as the sharp, linear rays of the sun illuminate the inner core of life and light.

    Do enjoy sitting under those shady trees and feel the tranquility and bliss of being part of the magnificent temple complex of Modhera!

    BAHUCHRAJI

    A short motor ride towards Chanasma and you come to the town of Becharaj and the temple of Bahuchar Mata, an incarnation of the Mother Goddess. Pilgrimages are undertaken to this site for vows fulfilled and boons granted. 'Bahuchar Mata' is the patron goddess of the women folk who invoke 'her' intervention in domestic violence and problems within the family. The goddess is also principle deity of transvestites and eunuchs who flock here large numbers to seek the blessings of the goddess.

  • SHANKHESHWAR

    This teerth place has been mentioned as Sanghpur in ancient history. As per the inscriptions in Jain history, AshadhiShravak has established Jin idols at Charup, Stambhpur and Shankheshwar. According to a myth, the army of Shri Krishna was relieved from effect of Jara weapon used by Jarasandh in the battlefield after using the holy water of bathing this idol was sprinkled on them. History of the idol of ShriShankheshwarParshwanath is still very ancient. ShriSajjan Shah, mahamantri in the court of King SidhhrajJaysingh have reclaimed this teerth in association with AcharyaShriDevendraSurishwarji, the guru of KalikalSarvagyaShriHemchandracharyaji. This was the period of richness of this city. It has been mentioned in Jain Shashtras that MantriVastupalTejpal has done all necessary renovation of this teerth place being inspired by the preaching of AcharyaShriVardhamanSurishwarji in (approximately) VNS 1755 (VS 1286). Probably, after this period, teerth place was damaged or destroyed and hence the king of JhinjhuvadaShriDurjanshalya carried out necessary renovation during VNS 1771 (VS 1302). Muslim invader AllauddinKhilji and his soldiers have destroyed this teerth place during 14th century. Prabhu idol was kept safe by ShriSangh. Muslim Emperor Shahjahan has released orders (Shahi Farman) to hand over Shankheshwar village in favor of nagarsethShriShantidas of Ahmedabad in VNS 2125 (VS 1656). Manajishravak, a resident of Gandhar village have rehabilitated this teerth place following the suggestions of ShriVijaysenSurishwarji approximately during this period. Renovation and pratishtha work once again took place during VNS 2229 (VS 1760) by the hands of ShriVijayratnaSurishwarji, the pattadhar of ShriVijayprabhSurishwarji. All these incidents proves the ancientness and richness of this teerth place.

    MAHUDI

    This derasar, considered to be one of the most sacred Jain pilgrimages, is situated in Mahudi, Mehsana District, and spreads over an area of 2 square kilometers. In ancient times, the place was known as Madhumati. The idols and artistic remains recovered from the ground show that the history of this place is nearly 2000 years old, based on the inscriptions in Brahmi script. AcharyadevBuddhiSagarsurisvarji was inspired in a dream to install the idol of GhantakarnaMahavirDev in 1923 A.D. This idol is considered to have miraculous powers. Thousands of Jain devotees, as well as devotees from other backgrounds, come to receive blessings from this idol.

    GhantakarnaMahavir was a Kshatriya (warrior) king named Tungabhadra in his previous birth and considered to be the protector of the less fortunate. So even today his idol carries his weapons a bow and arrow. It is always said that in his previous birth he was very fond of sukhadi, and so there is a tradition of all visitors offering sukhadi to him during the prayer. However, it is believed that the sukhadi should be consumed or donated before leaving the premises, otherwise it might bring bad luck.

    Next to this shrine is a bell on a height of about 30 feet and devotees climb up to ring it and ask for the fulfillment of a wish. In this vicinity there is another larger temple with a 22-inch marble idol of BhagawanPadmaprabhu sitting in padmasana (lotus) posture, installed by Acharyadev. It is customary to take a bhoomti (circumambulation) around the 24 shrines of the tirthankaras here. The nearest railway station of Vijapur is 10 kms away. There are good bus facilities to get to Mahudi from Ahmedabad, Gandhinagar and Kalol.

    PALITANA

    Palitana located 51 km south west of Bhavnagar is known for being the largest cluster of Jain temples. There are in total 863 temples from base to the peak of the Shatrunjaya hill, where the Palitana temples are located. The path is climbed through 3950 steps spanning 3.5 km up the Shatrunjaya Hills.

    The construction of temples of Palitana spanned over a period of 900 years and was structured in two phases. From the 11th to12th centuries AD as a part of the resurgence of temple building all over India, the first phase of temple architecture was constructed. The second phase followed later, from the 16th century AD onwards. Muslim invaders destroyed some of the earliest temples built in the 11th century AD, during the 14th and 15th centuries AD. No one person can be attributed for the construction of these magnificent temples rather it was the effort of the wealthy businessmen who were followers of Jainism.

    KALIKUND

    Kundal is a historical place, its ancient name was Koundinyapur where so many debates were organized. AcharyaSamantbhadra defeated so many Learned Persons in debates here. The tradition of Kundal is more than 1600 years old. It is supposed that Samavsharan of BhagwanParsvanath&Mahaveer came here and last ShrutkevaliPoojyaShridhara Muni achieved salvation here. Atishaya - Here Lord Parsvanath's idol is miraculous. It is said that a son of a King died due to some disease, then his newly married wife prepared an idol of Parsvanath made of Sand and goddess Padmavati and started prayers & worship with the deep heart, due to the effect of such heartly worship, her husband became alive. Same type of miracle is found in the story of King Satyeshwar& Queen Padmashri of Koundinyapur.

    SHRI RUNI TIRTH

    The idol installed here by Hemchandracharya was 450 years old idol of BhagawanParshvanath. It was stolen and buried by Muslims. A Muslim had a dream and, therefore, he handed over the idol to a Sharavaka named Medhasha. Wherever the Sharmaka went, the offered eightfold worship to the idol and the feet of this idol appreaed. These idol -feet were given to the Runi village on request of the Shravakas of that place. These idol-feet were known as 'Varkhadi'. In the flood of the year 1993 of the Vikram era, these idol - feet were swept away. When they were found again, the Sharvakas of Runi got them seen off respect fully and ceremoniously by AcharyaKumudchandrasurisvarji. In the year 2040 of the Vikram era, according to a dream and Guru's blessings, Bhaktisurisvarji brought prosperity to the sacred place of Runi and in the year 2047 of the Vikram era, the idol of BhagawanGodijiParshvanth was formally installed.

  • NARAYAN SAROVAR

    In a land replete with pilgrimage sites, Narayan Sarovar is a different kind of holy experience. At almost the westernmost point of land in India, it can only be reached by traveling over 100 km from Bhuj across the barren scrubland of Kutch. A journey after which the appearance of a vast lake will surprise you even though you have come to see it and its spiritual significance will be tangible.

    Narayan Sarovar Lake is one of the 5 holy lakes of Hinduism, along with Mansarovar in Tibet, Pampa in Karnataka, Bhuvaneshwar in Orissa and Pushkar in Rajasthan. The lake is associated with a time of drought in the Puranic area, when Narayan (a form of Lord Vishnu) appeared in response to the fervent prayers of sages and touched the land with his toe, creating the lake, now revered as holy to bathe in (though this is not recommended).

    There are temples to ShriTrikamraiji, Laxminarayan, Govardhannathji, Dwarkanath, Adinarayan, Ranchodraiji and Laxmiji, built by the wife of MaharaoDesalji. These are of more interest to those on religious pilgrimage here; other visitors are likely to find Koteshwar a more interesting option.

    KOTESHWAR MAHADEV

    Koteshwar is a tourist-place that is situated in the Kori Creek of the Arabian Sea on the western end of Kutch just opposite to Karachi-Pakistan. It is about 165 kms away from Bhuj and 2 kms from Narayan Sarovar.

    As stated in a legend, when Lord Shiva was delighted with the worship and forfeit of Ravan, he gave him a Ling-full of religious power. Lest Ravan should become endless as a result of this advantage, all the Gods united together and conspired to gain the Ling from Ravan through dishonesty and installed it as Kotilengeshwar. Then, the village came to be known as Koteshwar. It is invented to be Hieu-en-Tsiang's "Kie-tsi-fa-lo on the western border of the country close to the river Indus and to the great ocean of Kutch." According to Hieu-en-Tsiang, Koteshwar port is five miles in boundary near the mouth of the river Indus. There were 80 monasteries with about 5000 monks in them. In the middle of the completion were thirteen temples of which Mahesh Mandir was full of good monument. Koteshwar shows us a few signs of its former greatness. It stands as amazing on the sea-shore, rising courageously from the sea that washes its western parts and temples are enclosed by prepared walls, the gate approached by three flights of steps.

    The writing on the left side of the gate shows that the present fort and temple were constructed in 1820 by ShethSundarji and JethaShivjiBrahmakshatriya. In the middle, a beautifully built stone temple of Mahadev called Koteshwar is situated. Its terrace has three domes. Under the central dome, there is a large and beautiful cheek pull presented by RaoDesalji. In the right dome, there is a large stone image of Hanuman and in the left dome; there is a large stone image of Ganpati. Inside the porch, there is a hall Mandap with a large central and two side domes. At the internal end of the hall, the holy places are available and on the other side; figures of Ganpati and Hanuman. In the screen wall of the holy place, there are two inscriptions referring to the redecoration of the temples in 1820.

    A small temple is close to the chief Koteshwar holy place which was built by the same men and about the same time in honour and memory of Kalyaneshwar. A tetragon pool filled by every high rush is just near the small temple where the Hindus bathe and finish the Shraddha ceremony.

    ASHAPURA MATA

    From Bhuj, the capital of erstwhile state of Kutch, about 80 km to the north is the temple of Ma Ashapura at Mata no Madh. It has become a live symbol of faith of people of Kutch in the last 600 years.

    In 14th century two KaradVanias, Ajo and Anagor had this temple built. They were ministers in the court of the father of Lakho Fulani. The severe earthquake in 1819 badly damaged the temple. Within 5 years SundarjiShivji and Vallabhaji, the two persons of Brahmakshatriya caste repaired it. This ancient temple is now 58 ft. long, 32 ft. wide and 52 ft. tall. Once again the earthquake of 2001 AD shook it and its dome tumbled down. However, very soon it was repaired once again and now it stands with a new grandeur. The image of its deity, Ma Ashapura, is 6 ft. tall, 6ft. wide and is red in cot"or.It is said to be existing on its own, i.e. 'swayambhu'.

    Considered as the Cromwell of Kutch, JamadarFateh Muhammad had presented this temple with a 'deepmala' weighing 2 kg silver, and with 41 lamps carved in it. The head of the temple is called Rajabava and his power is still very great. When the ruler of Kutch visits Mata no Madh, inevitably he pays a visit to the temple. At the time the head of the temple sits on the throne and the ruler stands humbly before him. Ma Ashapura is the 'kuldevi' of the 'Jadeja' community of Jamnagar. At the city of Jamnagar also a temple of 'NaniAshapura' is built. The people of Kutch take care that nothing is missing in their hospitality of the visitors who come on foot most of the time. From Surajbari to the temple at various places tents are set up for resting. In some village such tents are turned into permanent stn..lctures as guesthouses. On the Bhuj - Anjar road and Bhachau - Dudhai road villagers erect relief camps enthusiastically. The pilgrims are served with tea, coffee, or other drinks, snacks, meals, fruits and even medical services like physiotherapy, doctors and medicines. These camps provide services round the clock. A huge camp comes up opposite the TalukaPanchayat building at Bhuj. Within 3 km of this, other 5 camps also come up. Among the pilgrims there are doctors, bank officials and other educated persons too. Many ladies, girls of peasants, girls attending colleges, teachers, rich merchants from distant Mumbai and other places, all come to Kutch and serve. The pilgrims are bidden adieu from the 'Panch-hatdiChowk' near the temple of Ma Ashapura at Bhuj.

    Millions of devotees visit the Mata no Madh to bow down to Ma Ashapura. The road turns into a carpet made of outer skin of dry coconuts. For hours the devotees wait for their turn for 'darshan' and observe discipline on their own to have a glimpse of the image of Ma Ashapura. On the day of Havanashtami the royal family of Kutch remains present at the puja. The 'jatar' is offered to the deity and a ceremony called 'patri' is performed. Here are also the temple of Chachar Mata, and places called ChacharFand and ChacharChowk.

    DATTATREYA

    25 kms north of Khavda, the top of the Black Hills is the highest point in Kutch, at 462 m. From here, the entire northern horizon vanishes into the Great Rann, the desert and sky often becoming indistinguishable. It is one of the few non-coastal locations where you feel like you are at the edge of the earth, on the brink of incomprehensible vastness that fades off towards infinity. Looking out from the Black Hills, you can understand the tremendous effort that those who undertake the crossing of the Great Rann have to make. Since this is one of the places where a civilian can get closest to the Pakistan border, there is an Army post at the top; beyond here, only military personnel are allowed. The hill is also the site of a 400-year-old temple to Dattatreya, the three-headed incarnation of Lord Brahma, Lord Vishnu and Lord Shiva in the same body. Legend says that when Dattatreya walked on the earth, he stopped at the Black Hills and found a band of starving jackals. Being a god, he offered them his body to eat and as they ate, his body continually regenerated itself. Because of this, for the last four centuries, the priest at the temple has prepared a batch of prasad that is fed to the jackals after the evening aarti.

    Reaching the hilltop by public transport is difficult; the only bus travels there from Khavda on weekend evenings and returns in the early morning. Hiring a jeep from Khavda is your other option. Visiting in the early morning or late afternoon is recommended, though with a few more hours there are nice hikes to do around the hill. Be sure to take your own food and water and if you want to stay the night, there is a dharamshala next to the temple
