“Sachiya Mata darshan- a miraculously planned trip”
Reviewed 28 April 2014

Sachiya mata is our "Kul Devi" ( a protector goddess of a community of similar surnames). This is her central big temple. We had made a mannat (wish) & on its fulfilment had promised to visit this temple for her Darshan. As there were a few bank holidays towards the last week of March I thought of leaving on 28th march fir for Jodhpur so we could come back on 31st march which was a holiday & resume work on 1st April. But for some weird reason my husband insisted that we leave on Sat & hence we would visit the temple on 31st march & luckily it turned out to be the first day of Navratra. Had we tried planning it to incorporate the Navratra invariably it wouldn't have succeeded but with Mataji's grace we fulfilled our mannat on the first day of Navratra.

Post Nakodaji darshan & a few other Jain temples we had planned to reach Osiaji on Sunday by 6ish so we get the evening Aarti & we were to spend the nite there & leave from there next morning after the morning Aarti . Unfortunately we reached late & missed the Aarti but however we got the darshan very peacefully. The temple has 118 odd steps to be climbed before we get to see Mataji. Our driver just dropped us outside the temple & we rushed up. That night we spent at a sanatorium adjacent to the Osiaji Mahavir temple. There's a sanatorium in the temple premise of Sachiya Mata temple too. The temple shuts by 8pm.

For dinner we ate at this little restaurant in the lane bang opp the temple. The restaurant name is visible from outside the temple. If I remember the name correctly it's called Sachiya Mata restaurant only. The owner was extremely hospitable & made was eat with great love & care. Please note that Rajasthani food is quiet oily & spicy so pls be careful in mentioning it if you are not oily & spicy food lover. The food was super tasty & quiet cheap.

Next morning we woke up by 6ish & picked up 1.25 kgs sheera that we had ordered to offer to Mataji. We had also carried pedas from Mumbai. Apparently the sheera offering is quiet a ritual amongst the followers. Care to be taken that women who are in their periods do not cook this sheera nor women chumming themselves are allowed in the temple.

The person who is offering the sheera carries it on his / her head in the plate or a box till the top of the temple for the offering. Sheera is made to order in the temple premises but orders can be placed only in the morning post 9am for offering. Since we wanted to leave early as we had an evening train to Mumbai & had Jodhpur sight seeing left we could not wait for it, we came across, in the market this eatery called as Agrawal refreshment selling sheera out of a local residents house (in the lane opp the Sachiya mata temple). He gave us the delivery as early as 7.30am. The morning Aarti timings change twice a year. During this small navratra it changes to 8.30 am & from the big Navratra changes back to 9am.

We offered all our prayers, sweets, chunri & all suhaag & shringar items for mataji. Luckily post our darshan the queues started piling up. We offered all the prasad to the visitors there & the sheera to the cows. We also fed breakfast to 2 poor males' - 1) a small kid about 8-9 yrs old & 2) an elderly man in remembrance of 2 corresponding aged dead members in our immediate family as were remembering them too in our moments of happiness.

We thanked Mataji for all her blessings & left from Osiaji with a wish of visiting again at least once a year.

“Beautiful temple”
Reviewed 7 March 2014

Our driver dropped us off some way from the temple, so it took a bit of finding, even with help from the local schoolchildren.
If you can ignore the modern trappings such as the safety rails etc, this is a beautiful temple. Our guide explained the temple in great detail and also the religious ceremony that was going on. I am not sure what our parish church would think if foreign tourists started taking pictures during Holy Communion!
The carvings are quite stunning, although several have been defaced by the Muslims over the centuries.

“Very Good Temple”
Reviewed 12 January 2014

In middle of the desserts just 65-70 Km from Jodhpur is a pearl lies this large beautiful temple with some impressive carvings.This is a holy place and a working temple.There have been modifications to ensure the safety and comfort of large numbers of pilgrims although it was quiet on our visit.If you are not going to jaiselmer then going to osian worth . This is only attraction in osian apart from desert. From the top you can see sand dunes and desert which is a majestic view.

“Magnificent”
Reviewed 16 December 2013

This large temple is beautiful with some impressive carvings.This is a holy place and a working temple.There have been modifications to ensure the safety and comfort of large numbers of pilgrims although it was quiet on our visit..A foreign tourist who has come merely to gawp and take photos may feel that the extensive railings, metal grills, glass fibre roofing and smoke ducting detracts from its beauty.This is missing the point. It is a place of worship,not a photo shoot. That said there is an incredible amount of interest and beauty,you just need to be a bit more creative in framing your shots.
