Mata na madh Tourism At A Glance

In Gujarat, India’s Kachchh district, the village of Mata no Madh is located in the Lakhpat Taluka. A temple to Ashapura Mata, the home deity of the erstwhile Jadeja kings of Kachchh State, is located in the settlement, which is flanked by hills on both banks of a tiny creek. She is regarded as Kachchh’s patron goddess as well.

The town of Lakhpat, which is only 33 kilometres north of Narayan Sarovar, is mostly known for its walled fort. In the 1800s, the town had a significant role as a hub for coastal trade. The massive fort walls at the mouth of Kori Creek remain as a testament to a brief but magnificent era. The only section of the fort still standing is the rampart, which may be climbed to get a view of the serene sea. This location is really gorgeous around dusk.

Koteshwar Temple

The Koteshwar Temple, the final remnant of human habitation at India’s westernmost point, is the only point that separates the skyline from the broad blue horizon to the west and the flat brown horizon to the east. It’s story starts with Ravana, who received a boon from Lord Shiva for his exceptional acts of devotion. This blessing came from a Shiva linga that had immense spiritual might but that Ravana unintentionally dropped in his haughty hurry, causing it to fall to the ground near Koteshwar. The linga changed into a thousand identical replicas as retribution for Ravana’s negligence. Unable to tell which was the original, Ravana took one and ran away, leaving the original one at this location, around which the Koteshwar Temple was constructed.
