History of this Temple
Prana Toshini is a book based on Tantra Vidya in which the origin of Mata Bagalamukhi has been told. It is said that in Satyuga such a devastating storm came which had the potential to destroy the whole world. To stop this storm, Lord Vishnu did penance near Haridra Sarovar in Saurashtra region. Pleased with his penance, Mata Baglamukhi appeared on Chaturdashi Tithi and protected the world from that destructive storm.
Mata Bagalamukhi installed in the temple is called Trishakti because it is probably the only temple in India where three goddesses are included in the self-manifested idol. Mata Bagalamukhi is seated in the middle, Lakshmi in the right and Saraswati in the left.
Mata Bagalamukhi is known as the original power of Maharudra. Apart from Mata Baglamukhi in the temple, there is a temple of Dakshinmukhi Hanuman ji, Lord Krishna and Kaal Bhairav. There is a divine lamp in front of the temple which was established by Maharaj Vikramaditya. The lion gate of Baglamukhi Temple is also unique in itself.
