Becharaji
A short motor ride towards Chanasma and you come to the town of Becharaj and the temple of Bahuchar Mata, an incarnation of the Mother Goddess. Pilgrimages are undertaken to this site for vows fulfilled and boons granted. ‘Bahuchar Mata’ is the patron goddess of the women folk who invoke ‘her’ intervention in domestic violence and problems within the family. The goddess is also principle deity of transvestites and eunuchs who flock here large numbers to seek the blessings of the goddess.
