Udaipur is valued as one of the most beautiful places of the world today and to evidence it Neemach Mataji is the best place as people who have experienced it call it a paradise.
This temple of Udaipur has become an attraction over last few years. There are people who visit the temple twice a day. I usually don’t visit temples situated on heights because of not to be discussed reasons. But, this time I visited the temple and thought to share my experience with you all.
Before I go further, here’s something which should be known about Mata Rani….
Neemach Mataji is a temple located near Fateh Sagar. It is believed to be built in the year 1652-1680. It is also believed that Shree Nimcha Mata (also known as Ambaji) is the clan Goddess of the Royal family of the Maharanas. This stone idol of the Goddess is 56 inch in height and 23 inch in width. The offer idol of Lord Ganesh is 22.1 inch high and 12.1 inch wide. Outside the inner temple is a Hawan Kund for performance of Yojna.
Dr. R.K Agarwal is the person from Udaipur who took the initiative to develop the temple and the result of his efforts is, today this temple is known as ‘Udaipur ki Vaishno devi’. According to sources, devotees used to carry bags filled with stone and bajri for developing the way to the temple.
To reach the temple one has to climb the whopping height of 850 meters and can only reach to the peak by foot. It has both stairs and pavement ways to walk up. The entire way is covered with natural mountain forest and lush greenery which makes the tough journey look easy. The tough walk and clean air helps people keep fit. The experience you get when you are at the top of hill is unmatched, and the whole Panorama of Udaipur is visible clearly from there. It is truly a “must visit” place.
We started for Neemach Mata Ji at 18:30 hours buying prasad of coconut and chinauri with some incense sticks and a mata ki chunari. I walked just a hundred steps and got tired as always because of my unfit body. But, after watching elderly people walking and moving ahead filled me with more energy and I was back on track. I took about half an hour to reach the temple.
Some of the Quotations I read on the way were:
Finally we reached the temple and paid our offerings before mataji. I wanted to know more so asked pujaari ji, according to him: very Important Hindu festivals such as Deepawali, Navratri and Dussehra are celebrated at this temple with great enthusiasm.
This is my experience to Neemach Mataji. It would be glad to read your experience to the temple. To those who have never visited it, I would repeat it is a “must visit” place of Udaipur.
