Chamunda Mataji Temple - Chotila Temple - Gujarat India

This Chamunda Mataji Temple is Located at Chotila Village. Chotila is very small town come village 50 KM away from Rajkot City. Chotila is on the way from Rajkot to Ahmadabad, National Highway 8 (On NH-8) in Gujarat India.

The story is when Demons Chand and Mund came to conquer Devi Mahakali and in the fight that ensues, the Devi cut their heads and presented these to Maa Ambika, who in turn told Mahakali that will be worshipped as Chamunda Devi. Again Mataji temples are always located at the top of the hills in India and the reason for this is that if you want darshnas of Mataji, you will have to undergo some physical strain.

Chamunda Mataji is the Kuldevi (family Goddess) of most of the Hindus staying in Saurashtra region of Gujarat State in India.

In Chotila Mountain, there about 700 stoned steps up to the top of the hill. These steps were not covered by the shade before about 5 years. However, a good shade and railings now cover the entire walkway thus providing comfort to all the pilgrims. Famous industrialists, Ambani brothers of Reliance industries have donated this covering and the shades on the hill.

Chotila is a small town having population of around 20,000 people and is a taluka head quarter of Rajkot district, Gujarat. The Chamuna Mataji Temple is situated at the top of the Chotila Mountain. Chotila Mountain is around 1250 feet high and is located around 40 miles away from Rajkot, and around 50 miles away from Ahmedabad.

During the navaratri festival, a big havan used to take place on top of the Chotila hill. It is said that after the aarti at chotila hill in the evening everybody comes down the hill and that no one stays there that's what Chamunda Mataji has said. Also people have encountered that there is a lion on the hill or dungar of chotila.

Chotila in Gujarat is “Birth Place of Dimpal Kapadia & Zaverchand Meghani”

Famous Hindi film actress Dimpal Kapadia was born in Chotila Gujarat India. She is elder daughter of Chotila’s Gujarati entrepreneur Chunnibhai Kapadia and his wife Betty. When her daughter twinkle Khanna(now married to famous Hindi film hero Akshay Kumar) visited Ahmedabad some years back, she specially visited Chotila and paid her visit to Chamunda temple on the hill.

Saurashtra’s most celebrated writer, author, poet, journalist, freedom fighter late Zaverchand Meghani was also born here in Chotila Gujarat India. House in Chotila where Zaverchand Meghani born was in neglected condition till recent time, but some people have started to preserve it now.
