Mata-no-madh is around 75 kms from Bhuj on way to Koteswar. Don't miss the Tropic of Cancer line that comes some 10s of kms before this temple. The temple is well maintained, photography prohibited on inside, separate queues for male and female and toilet facilities also available. There is one story behind the temple that is best heard from your... More

This is a temple and for those who believe to visit religious sites. It is on a small hill. Though it is a major attraction for locals, others may not find it very interesting.

It is always a heavenly experience the moment you step into Matanamadh. It is like coming home and seeing you mother smile. After paying my respects to Ma, my family and I stepped in the mess for dinner. This dinner is Ma's prasad and is relished by thousands everyday and the management will never charge you anything for it. It... More
