Sachiya Mata Temple Timings Osiyaji

The mother goddess Sachiya (also spelled as Sachayay Mata and Sachchiyay Mata,  is worshipped there by Maid Kshatriya Swarnakar (Kulthiya families), Marwadi, Oswal, Agarwal, Maheshwari, Karnawat, and Mahecha (Maru Kansara Soni from Beraja-Kutch). Panwar Rajputs/Parmar Rajputs, Lakhesars Kumawat (Kumhar sub-caste), Oswal, Charans, Jains, Pareek Brahmins, and many other castes living in Rajasthan, Gujarat, Madhya Pradesh, and North India. The temple was built by the Parmar King Upendra for his Kuldevi in the 9th to 10th century CE.

Maa Jagat Bhawani Shri Sachchiyay Mataji was historically called Shri Osiya Mataji.

An archaeological team found many samples, statues, and paintings there. Depictions included the ancient deity of Harihar (half Shiva and half Vishnu), Vasudeva with baby Krishna on his head, Krishna fighting with a horse, the killing of Putna, Kalidaman, Govardhan Dharan, and butter stealing along with images of Balram which seem to represent him as the incarnation of Seshnaga

Sachiya Mata Temple  History

A stone inscription, at the Jain temple of Osian, gives a different story about the name of Sachiya Mata. According to this story, a Jain monk, Acharya Shrimad Vijay Ratnaprabhasuriji Maharaj Sahib, visited Osian town to perform the ceremony known as Anjan Salakha, at the newly created temple of God Mahaveer, around 43 CE. The temple of Mahavir had been built by Uhad, who was a minister of King Upaldeo; at that time, Osian was known as Upkeshpur. A temple of Jagat Bhavani (Great Goddess) Chamunda Mata was in the town of Upkeshpur. To receive the grace of the goddess, sacrifices of male buffaloes used to be made in the temple, during the festival of Navratri.

When the Jain monk Vijay Ratnaprabhasuriji Maharaj learned about this practice, he felt deep sympathy for the animals sacrificed. Using his influence on the minister and king, he convinced them to ban this practice. A temple in Katraj (Pune) is dedicated to Sachchiya Mata (Osiya Mata), close to the Swetamber Jain temple of Katraj. In her temple, Sachiya Mata-Ji is worshipped with lapsi (an Indian sweet dish), saffron, sandalwood, and incense.
