Significance :

Historic & beautifully built live temple

There is also a celebrated temple in Osian called Sachiya Mata. This temple is dedicated to Sachchi Mata (Shachi) or also known as Indrani who was the wife of Lord Indra (Rain God). Shachi finds mention in the story of the killing of demon Vritrasur (वृत्रासुर) by India with the help of Vajrayudh built out of the bones of Sage Dadhichi (दधीचि). The foundations of it dates from the eighth century AD, but its major portion, as now standing, was executed towards the middle of the twelfth century AD. This is also confirmed by inscriptions engraved on pillars, which show that about the close of the twelfth century AD, many Brahmin families contributed money to erect the various portions of the temple. An inscription of VS 1234, engraved on the image of Bhairava mentions that a banker Gayapala of the Gobadaihsi family had decorated the sanctum with the images of Ghandika, Shitala, Kshemaihkan, Sachchika, and Kshetrapala. Built in many phases, this temple at Osian includes two holy places devoted to Chandi Devi and Amba Mata respectively. Only certain family members worship the deity. The wonderfully carved series of arched entrances leads the visitors, faithful and guests inside the temple. Decorated with charming images and sculptures of Hindu deities, the temple also has the sculpture of Lord Varaha (the Incarnation of Lord Vishnu as the boar) on the north and an image of Lord Vishnu-Lakshmi on the east. Sachiya Mata Temple is an artistic example of medieval architecture.
