Harshat Ma has since been worshiped as Kuldevi of Yadavs. Seth Jagdu Shah of Kutch, a Jain merchant, was saved by Harsidhhi Mata, when his ships were sinking near the sea where Harshad Mata Mandir Porbandar on the hill stood. He made a new temple in 1300AD below the hill and requested Devi to move down the hill, ever since many Jain castes worship her as Kuldevi. The idol of Jagdu Shah is also situated to the right of Goddess's idol inside the Harshad Ma Temple, which is also being worshiped as per boon given to Jagdu Shah that his name, from this time forth, will forever be associated with this temple.
