Mythological story of Sachiya Mata Temple

Saatchi (Sachi) was the daughter of Asura (demon) King Pauloma. Vritra who worked as an army chief in Pauloma’s army wanted to marry Sachi. But Sachi disliked the idea of marrying him as she felt it was a disgrace to marry her father’s servant. Vritra resigned from the service and sat in meditation of Lord Shiva. Lord Shiva blessed him with a boon that he could not be killed with any known weapon. Happy with the boon he got, Vritra set out on an expedition with his army to build a Kingdom bigger than King Pauloma.  

Lord Indra (the King of Gods) had to defend. Pauloma’s kingdom from Vritra(vrut). As Indira knew the boon Vritra had received (boon of immortality), he approaches Sage Dadhichi, who had bones stronger than any known weapon. Dadhichi sacrificed himself and gave his bones to Indira, from which Indira prepared a weapon known as ‘Vajrayudha’.

Vritras army met Lord Indra’s army in the battlefield. Indira propose two conditions: 

  • Only they both will fight and the armies will not be used 
  • The winner would marry Sachi. Indira killed Vritra using ‘Vajrayudha’, emerged victorious and married Sachi.
