Historical evidence of temple construction is not available, but an inscription of Vikram Samvat 1540 has been found in this area. From this, it can be inferred that this temple dates back to the Emperor Kanishka period.
The word Triurari is mentioned in the inscription. By the way, the existence of the back of the mother goddess is believed to be here before the third century. The rulers of Gujarat, Malwa, and Marwar were worshipers of Tripura Sundari.
It was the favored goddess of Solanki king Siddharaj Jai Singh of Gujarat. He used to go to war only after worshiping his mother. It is said that the Malwa King Jagadesh Parmar had cut his head at the feet of mother.
At the same time, on the prayer of King Siddharaj, the mother revived the son Jagadev. The temple was renovated by Chanda Bhai Luhar of the Panchal caste around the third century. Close to the temple is the Bhagi quarry, where once there was an iron mine.
According to legend, one day Tripura Sundari arrived as a beggar at the entrance to the mine, but the Panchalas paid no attention to it. The goddess demolished the mine with anger, causing many people to die.
To please the goddess mother, the Panchalas built the temple and pond of the mother here. This temple was renovated in the 16th century. Even today, the Panchal society takes care of the Tripura Sundari temple.
The ruins of many temples have been found here. During the excavation in 1982, the idol of Shiva Parvati was found here, with Riddhi-Siddhi on either side, Ganesh and Karthikeya. According to the prevailing mythological narrative, after the Daksha-Yagya was destroyed, Shivji started to sit on the dead body of Sati on the shoulder.
Then Lord Vishnu started the demolition of Sati’s body on the ground floor with the help of Yogmaya’s Sudarshan Chakra to save the world from the holocaust. At that time, all the places where Sati’s marks fell, all the places became Shaktipeeth. There are 51 such Shaktipeeths and one of them is Tripura Sundari.
The sanctum sanctorum of the goddess Tripura, located among the three men, has a beautiful shining with a beautiful eighteen-armed Shyamvarni idol with various arms of the goddess. There are nine-ten small idols in its aura which is called ten Mahavidya or Nav Durga.
The Sri Yantra is engraved on the marble black and shiny stone under the statue, which has its own special Tantric significance. The back of the temple was Triveda, Kali in the south, and Ashta Bhuja Saraswati temple in the north, the remains of which still exist today.
Here the stories of many perfect worshipers and miracles of the Goddess are heard. The temple has been a famous worship center for distinguished power-seekers for centuries. People come from far and wide to bow on this Shaktipeeth.
On the occasion of the Navaratri festival, there are special programs in the temple every day, which are celebrated as special ceremonies. Every day for nine days, the beautiful tableau of Tripura Sundari’s adornment is captivating.
People come from far and wide to get a glimpse of the grand idol in the region and Vasanti Navratri. Twenty-four hours in the Bhajan Kirtan Jagran, immersed in a wave of meditation, worship, chanting, and rituals, every devotee is seen every moment merely announcing Maat Ki Jai.
Ghat installation is done in the temple on the first day auspicious time. Barley or wheat is sown in the dung soil by laying it in a clean place. Akhand Jyoti is lit near it. Paddy sown in mud-dung is filled with water in an earthen vase.
This is called a minus installation. Barley is sown by placing dung-soil in an earthen lid over the water urn. Two to three days later, the seedlings of paddy sprout, which are called Jaware. In front of them, the goddess is worshiped with incense, incense sticks, coconut, flowers, roli, moli etc.
Havan is performed here on Ashtami and Navami of Navratri. On Navami or Dussehra, the Jawars are offered to Mataji. Thereafter, by offering puja, this Kalash is sent to the Mahi River along with the jowar.
