Shree Mahakali Mataji Temple – Pavagadh Temple History & Legends

Shree Mahakali Mataji Temple
Shree Mahakali Mataji Temple

Not much is known about the historical origins of the Mahakali temple Pavagadh. It is dated to a period, sometime in the 10th or 11th centuries, and the temple has been rebuilt a number of times. However, according to legend, the deity was established at the top of the Pavagadh Hill by the revered Sage Vishwamitra, who is credited with writing the famous Gayatri Mantra.

The temple was within a fortress of a Hindu kingdom, and the last Hindu King was Patai Jaisinh who was ousted by the invasion of Mahmud Begada. It is believed that a kingdom was established at the foot of the Pavagadh hill by Vanraj Chavda, and it was named Champaner, and later on, the region was ruled by the Patai Raval dynasty.

Pavagadh which is now part of the Panchmahal district in Gujarat was a hallowed pilgrim centre from ancient times. People from far and wide took the arduous road up the rocky hill for a glimpse of the Goddess.

According to one legend, during the festival of Navratri which is celebrated in a grand manner, men and women were dancing with great fervour, when the Goddess Mahakali, herself joined in disguised as a normal woman.

It so happened that King Patai Jaisinh, who was also in the crowd, spotted her. He was instantly smitten by the extraordinary beauty that she radiated. He approached her and held her hand. The Goddess was angered by the King’s advances and she cursed him saying that misfortune would befall him, before vanishing.

The prophecy of the Goddess came true as Patai Jaisinh’s kingdom was attacked soon by Mahmud Begada, and it fell to the invading army. Mahmud Begada established his hegemony over the region, and the Shikhar and part of the Mahakali Temple were destroyed by the invaders. Over time, the Dargah of a Muslim saint was built above the Mahakali temple, and the flag that had furled atop the temple flew no more.

The Mahakali temple at Pavagadh is believed to be a Shakti Peeth, where the toe of Sati is believed to have fallen.

Renovation Of Kalika Mata Temple Pavagadh

500 years after the invasion of Champaner by Mahmud Begada, and the desecration of the Mahakali temple of Pavagadh, the temple has been renovated and a new Shikhar built. The new temple complex is built over three levels and is spread over a massive area of about 30,000 square feet. Many facilities for the ease and convenience of the pilgrims are being added. A state-of-the-art ropeway is already there and a lift to the top is being built.

Flag Hoisting At Mahakali Temple Pavagadh

Flag hoisting at the Kali Mata Mandir in Pavagadh Gujarat is inextricably linked with its history. The traditional flag hoisting of the temple has resumed after a gap of five centuries. As part of the renovation and remodelling project of the temple, the Dargah that stood on top of the temple has been shifted nearby with the consent of its caretakers, and a new Shikhara and Kalasha have been built.

The traditional ceremony of flag hoisting from the spire of the temple has resumed. Prime Minister Narendra Modi, hoisted the flag on the summit of Pavagadh Hill from the Shikhara of the remodelled Mahakali Mata temple and the tradition was restarted after a gap of over 5 centuries.

We were lucky and blessed to be in time to see a flag hoisting or Dhwajarohan ceremony taking place at the Mahakali temple Pavagadh. The flag hoisting ceremony takes place five times a day. Anyone can offer a flag, which is available in different sizes.

The flags range from a length of 11 feet which is available against a donation or Dakshina of Rs 3100 to 51 feet for a donation of Rs 11000. You would need to book this Seva in advance and when your turn comes you are intimated of the date and time when you can participate in the flag-hoisting ritual.

Visiting Pavagadh Shakti Peeth – Kalika Mata Temple Pavagadh

Road to Kalika Mata Temple Pavagadh
Road to Kalika Mata Temple Pavagadh

We were looking forward to visiting the Kalika Mata Temple in Pavagadh, Gujarat as part of our Panchmahal itinerary. A wide two-lane road led from the welcome arch near Champaner to the base of Pavagadh Hill. This is the village of Machi, and vehicles can come only to this point. The ruins of the palace of the Patai Raval kings are located near this point.

We alighted from our vehicle at this point as this is where the parking is also located. If you do not have your own vehicle, there are jeeps that ferry you from the welcome gate to Machi for a nominal charge, the distance is about 5 kilometres and not more.

Reva Path Pavagadh

Machi is the point from where you ascend to the top of Pavagadh hill. You can choose to walk all the way, in which case you would need to negotiate 1800 steps, taking a path that is named, ‘Reva Path,”. A board on an arch that leads to the pathway says that the walk to the top would take only 45 minutes, however, that seems to be an optimistic view, as the climb is quite steep.

Mahakali Temple Pavagadh Ropeway – A Smooth

Ride 

Udan Khatola Pavagadh
Way to Udan Khatola Pavagadh

The Pavagadh ropeway is named, “Udan Khatola,” and is installed and managed by Usha Breco, the pioneer in ropeways. We had earlier experienced their ropeway at Jatayu Earth Centre in Kerala and found the service impeccable. So it was with a lot of expectation that we hopped into one of the bright-coloured cars that would take us nearer to Pavagadh Ka Mandir.

Mahakali Temple Pavagadh Ropeway

The ride to the Pavagadh ropeway was, to say the least, smooth. As the gondola swung up the hill, the green and the town of Champaner stretched out languorously below.

Swinging high above the ground is always a thrilling experience, but the ride on the cable car was over, no sooner had it begun. The ride lasts just about 5 to 7 minutes. We had, reached our destination and filed out to resume our journey to the Mahakali temple.

The Walk To Shree Mahakali Mataji Temple

Shops on the way to Pavagadh temple

After alighting from the Udan Khatola (Cable Car) at the terminus, we climbed a few stairs and emerged onto the pathway that led further up the hill to the temple. The walking path from the bottom of the hill merged with this path at this point.

We walked along a broad concrete path that was shady as it was covered. Shops selling a range of items lined both sides of the walkway.

Colourful, “Chunaris,” to be offered to the Goddess, an array of sweets again to be offered as Prasad, coconuts, flower garlands, and a host of other items vied with each other to grab the attention of the passersby.

Men, women, and children from all sections of society, joined in what was a human stream flowing towards the divine presence of Mahakali Mataji. Sheer faith kept them moving, a man with one leg, moved along at a hectic pace with the aid of a crutch, his face awash with a strange bliss. A group moved forward, energetically raising cries of, “Jai Mataji,” waving colourful flags.

Enroute Pavagadh temple

A couple of Jain nuns moved along with their characteristic briskness.

Oblivious to all these, a herd of donkeys lugged heavy loads that were the supplies that were needed at the top. The donkeys were still the lifeline to the summit.

Ancient Jain temple Pavagadh
Ancient Jain temple, Pavagadh

We passed an ancient Jain temple on our left and stopped to take a few pictures. Pavagadh apart from being an important pilgrimage centre for Hindus is also an important destination for Jains. Pavagadh Jain temples are something to look out for during your trip.

Dudhia Talao Pavagadh.
Dudhia Talao, Pavagadh.

We soon reached a water body, mid-way up the hill. It is a lake known as Dudhia Talao. This lake is considered sacred, and many religious rituals are performed here, including a sacred dip.

Parshawnath Jain Mandir
Parshawnath Jain Mandir, Pavagadh

A little further from where the Dudhia Talao is located another Jain Temple, the Parshawnath Jain Mandir, with beautiful carvings and architectural design, that is reminiscent of the beauty of Jain temples like the Ranakpur Jain temple and Parshawnath Jain temple of Rajasthan.

We soon reached a gate which is called, “Shakti Dwar,” This is a controlled entry point into the Mahakali Shakti Peeth. We were pleased to note that plastic is not allowed beyond this point, and guards do a random check for it at this point. There are no shops beyond this point, and the climb gets steeper from here, though the steps are quite wide and comfortable.

Coconut offerings Pavagadh

By the side of this gate is a specially marked place where devotees can offer coconuts. The pilgrims break the coconut that they have brought, into two halves, leaving one half here and taking the other half home as Prasad.

Chunari offered at Pavagadh

An iron railing near the gate is hidden with shimmering and vibrant chunaris that have been tied here by people who have asked for a wish to be fulfilled by the Goddess.

The climb to the top is a little steep and maybe a bit difficult for senior citizens and those who are not physically fit. The planned lift, when it comes, will be a boon for such people, as it will eliminate even the climb of about 300 steps.

We climbed on along with a sea of people, all eager to catch a glimpse of their beloved Mahakali Ma. The view from near the top was spectacular.

View from Pavagadh Hill

On one side we could see the Dudhia Talao, while on the other side, we could see another water body shimmering in the sun, and what looked like an ancient military outpost on the edge of the cliff.

The climb culminated when we reached a massive sandstone gate embellished with images of Shiva in different forms.

Shiva holding body of Sati

But what was the defining image that arrested our gaze was that of Shiva holding his Trishul in his left hand, with a sorrowful expression. On his shoulder is the limp and lifeless body of Sati. This image wordlessly conveys the information that you are about to enter the hallowed premises of Shakti Peeth.

We soon reached the temple which was fronted by a large open courtyard and an ornate arch. Young boys and girls, aged men and women, all surged forth in an ecstatic burst, realizing that they were within touching distance of their goal.

A woman with an infant at Pavagadh

A woman with an infant knelt down in front of the steps, placing the baby on the temple steps, praying to the divine mother for her benevolence.

Once inside, we along with the crowd around us were pulled like magnets towards the sanctum, where the deities stood resplendent, enveloped in a mystical aura. These were the deities who had inspired millions to make the arduous journey to Pavagadh, since time immemorial. People were overcome with ecstatic euphoria which burst forth spontaneously in cries of, “Jai Mata Ji.”

After spending some blissful moments in the divine presence of the universal Mother, it was time to head back towards the Cable car station. We had gone to the Shri Mahakali Mata temple, Pavagadh, empty-handed, but we returned with divine blessings and a feeling of peace and harmony with the universe.

The New Mahakali Mandir Pavagadh And The Sanctum Sanctorum

The temple complex at Pavagadh has undergone a metamorphosis. The Hazrat Sadanshah Pir Dargah which was earlier located on top of the Garba Griha has been shifted and is now an independent structure with its own design within the same complex. The temple has been rebuilt without disturbing the idols of the deities that are embedded in the wall. The Shikhara and a golden Kalasha now stand at the place where the Dargah was earlier located.

The temple has been rebuilt with red sandstone from Rajasthan and is designed by an architect named Ashish Sompura. His family has also helped in the renovation of the famed Somnath temple and the design of the Akshardham Mandir. The family is also entrusted with the design of the Ayodhya Ram Mandir.

The architectural design of the Shree Mahakali Mataji Temple is a contemporary Nagara style, with a front porch, main hall, and the Garba Griha beneath the towering Shikhara. Ornamental ceilings, colourful floors, and latticework lend a soothing ambience to the temple, which is filled with natural light and air.

Inside the sanctum sanctorum or Garbagriha of the temple are three deities. In the centre, resplendent in red is the main deity, Shree Mahakali Mataji. This deity is in the form of Mukhwato or just the head. Shee Mahakali Ma is flanked on her left by an image of Kalika Mata, while on her right is the Yantra representation of Bahuchara Mata.

What Is A Shakti Peeth?

Pavagadh Shakti Peeth

The legend of Sati forms the core of two important sects of Hinduism, namely, Shaktism and Shaivism. According to the Puranas, Sati married Shiva against the wishes of her father, Daksha. Sati kills herself by jumping into a sacrificial fire after her father humiliates Shiva. An angry and distraught Shiva is believed to have roamed the heavens carrying the lifeless body of Sati. Her body parts fell at 51 different places, and these eventually became centres of Shakti worship and came to be known as Shakti Peethas.

Pavagadh Shakti Peeth

There is however no consensus on some of the Shakti Peeths. 18 of the Shakti Peeths are regarded as the more important ones, and these have been mentioned by Adi Shankaracharya in his Ashta Dasa Shakti Peetha Stotram.
