We were very aware of a great respect in the Bindu Sarovar. It is a place where one helps their late mother attain liberation. We could not follow all the various steps and actions but everyone was quite happy to let us watch and try to learn. It is a duty but also a pleasure. A very interesting visit.

As mentioned in the Hindu Scriptures, siddhpur known as matrugaya tirth is famous to offer our tarpan or clear the debt towards mother.

We never realise the importance of a mother until she leaves for the heavenly abode.

A life lived selflessly for her home, husband and children, a mother is worshipped by the Gods too.
Her sacrifices are uncountable towards her children. This tarpan is a thanksgiving and liberating our ancestors and our mother from the vicious circle of life and death.
It's said this pious place called the matru gaya tirth enables our ancestors or pitru to attain salvation (moksh).

Hence whether you are a son or a daughter, it's our duty to help them attain liberation.

This puja is repaying the debt of our mother.... Hence the name matru gaya...mentioned in the bhagwat gita too.

The puja takes about 2 hours, but be aware brahmins charge exorbitant fees. Minimum charges are Rs.5000. Moreover they demand many things to be offered in the puja.

Hence go on the siddhpur website, or look up the list of brahmins in siddhpur, call some of them, Discuss the rates and then book them.

The best months to offer this tarpan is chaitra. Kartak and bhadrapad months of Hindu calendar.

Siddhpur is easily accessible by road from ahmedabad. It's a 2.30 hours drive by car or taxi.

Taxi charges about 2000-3000 rupees from 6 am to 6 pm....
It's a very small town, with ancient houses but brahmins are quite rich.

Very clean place, pious and religious atmosphere, it's a matter of faith, that brings you here.

Jai shri Krisna.

The Bindu sarovar is a place visited by people wanting to perform last rituals for their mothers. Just 5-10 minutes away from the railway station, this place is located on a huge area. On entry, you see a clean, calm & peaceful place. There are private rooms available for a charge or you can simply freshen up at the bath houses located there. But private rooms check out is 5:00 pm so you end up paying double for a day ( 300 + 300 = 600) in case you check in early morning. Food options are not available inside so you have to go out or goto home mess serving decent food behind the place. Many people go there for food. But when rituals are being done, make sure not to be flashy or show off jewellery as the priests will charge accordingly.... bargain for a lower dakshina or else ya end up paying big.... overall a very peaceful place to stay and you want more of the place.....
