About

Sachchiyay Mata (also spelled Sachiya Mata, Sachay Mata or Sachchiya Mata, Hindi: सच्चियाय माता or सच्चिया माता), "the mother goddess", is worshipped as Kuldevi by Jains and Oswal as well as Panwar Rajputs (Parmar Rajputs), Charans, Pareek (bhramin) and many other castes living in Rajasthan and Gujarat.

  • Sachi Mata, also known as Indrani, was the consort of the rain-god Indra. According to the legend, Indra married her for her voluptuousness. The main shrine, along with the other two temples - the Chandi Ka Mandir and the Amba Mata Mandir, was constructed around circa 1178.
  • The Sachchiyay Mata temple near Jodhpur was originally built in the 8th - 10th century. However, the temple complex that now stands dates back to the 12th century.
  • Shri Mahavir Swami Temple and Shri Sachhiyay Mata Temple at Osian are the most important pilgrimage site of Oswal Jains.
