Very well organised temple. They won't let you take pictures so I can't show you. There is a fair bit of pushing and shoving to do darshan and I found that really rude, especially in such a holy temple. However, we got to offer our prayers how we wanted so we came away happy. Secure your bags and possessions because... More

This shrine or Ashapura is steeped in antiquity as far as its origin is concerned. There are references to this goddess in the Puranas, Rudrayamal Tantra and so on which are all said to point to this shrine in Kutch.

Goddess Ashapura, the household deity of the Jadejas is... More

This place is really nice place. Principle deity of Kutch, The unique thing about most of the idol of Ashapura Mata is that it has 7 pairs of eyes.Her temples are mainly found in Gujarat. Some people in Rajasthan and Gujarat consider her to be an incarnation(avatar) of goddess Annapoorna devi.

It is nice place and you can find so many tourist destinations nearby. The temple authority will provide you all the basic facilities at cheaper rate with good service. It's online facility is however poor with nearly no reply for email but you can contact them by mobile.

If you are on a religious trip around this region then this is a must visit place. The temple is relatively new, but the main idol inside is supposed to be 100s of years old. There is an older temple also at the top of a hill, just next to this (around 200mts). For other visitors its still worth a... More
