SIDDHAMBIKA MATA MANDIR, JUNA DEESA

SIDDHAMBIKA MATA MANDIR, JUNA DEESA

This temple is in the Juna Deesa. It is 33 kms from Palanpur and 6 kms from Deesa.

The inspiring statue of Siddhambika was installed sometime between the years 1500-1600. People believe that if one prays here with a pure heart and mind, all one's wishes will be fulfilled.



According to legend, Brahmaji wanted to build a beautiful city and he asked Vishvakarma to execute it and fulfill his desire. Vishvakarma selected a scenic spot, constructed the town there, and called it Darshanpur (which is today called Juna Deesa). He then erected the temple and installed the statue of Siddhambika Mata. Next to this temple is a temple of Siddeshwar Mahadev.

On special days like Janmashtami, Mahasud Aatham, and Chaitra Sud Punam, grand processions are taken out from here which are attended by a large number of people.

This tourist site has a good Dharamshala and Bhojanshala.
