Maatangi Modheshwari Temple Overview

Ranked 2 of 2 sightseeing in Modhera

The Maatangi Modheshwari Temple is dedicated to Goddess Modheshwari, the Kuldevi or family Goddess of the Modh Community. It is believed that demon Karnat was creating havoc in the region by disturbing the Brahmans during their prayers.

For seeking protection from the demon, all the saints went to Shri Mata Modheshwari. On hearing their grievances, she was upset as well as angry and started throwing fire from her mouth, which gave birth to Shri Mata Matangi. This incarnation of the goddess has eighteen arms, each having a weapon, like trident and dagger.

Goddess Maatangi killed the demon on Mahadev Trij and since that day an annual festival is organised in the village. On the days of Chaitra Navaratra and on the 15th of every month, special poojas and religious activities are organised in the temple.

Visited the beautiful temple for the first time

Never knew about this temple until my GF took me there. Its their home god so now we have to visit this temple again and again for sure. There is ever a reason behind why this temple exists and now they are building the temple much bigger than before.

A nicely renovated temple

While coming back from Bahucharaji, we visited this holy temple-called Modheshwari Mata Temple in Modhera, 14 km from Becharaji and 25 km from Mehsana. This is temple of Kuldevi of MODH CASTE, may be Modh Brahmin, Modh Bania or Modh Modi. Goddess was worshiped by Matanga Mooni so is called Matangi also. The campus and temple is renovated by some crore rupees. Definately a visit-able place
