pauranik itihas

modhera ka itihas bahut hi prachin hai. modh log modheshvari man ke anuyaee hain, jo anbe man ke atharah hath vale svaroop ki upasana karate hain. is tarah modhera modh vaishy v modh brahman ki matribhoomi hai. is sthan par bahut se devi-devataon ke charan pade hain. manyata hai ki is sthan par hi yamaraj (dharmaraj) ne 1000 varsh tak tapasya ki thi, jinaka tap dekhakar devaraj indr ko apane asan ka khatara mahasoos hua, lekin yamaraj ne kaha ki ve to trilok ke bhagavan shiv ko prasann karane ke lie tap kar rahe hain. shiv ne prasann hokar yamaraj se kaha ki aj se is sthan ka nam tumhare nam 'yamaraj' (dharmaraj) par 'dharmarany' hoga.

shriram ka agaman

skndapuran aur brahmapuran ke anusar bhagavan shriram bhi is sthan par ae the. manyata ke anusar jab bhagavan ram ne lnka ke raja ravan ka vadh kar diya, tab ve brahman ki hatya se mukti hetu is nagar men ygy karane hetu ae the. jab ram yahan aye, tab ek sthaniy mahila ro rahi thi. sabhi ne rone ka karan janana chaha, lekin mahila ne kaha ki "main sirph prabhu shriram ko hi karan bataoongi." ram ko jab yah pata chala to unhonne us mahila se karan janana chaha. mahila ne bataya ki is sthan se yahan ke mool nivasi vaishy, brahman adi palayan karake chale ge hain, unhen vapas lane ka upay karen. tab shriram ne is nagar ko punah basaya v sabhi palayan kie hue logon ko vapas bulaya aur nagar ki raksha ka bhar hanuman ko diya. lekin dharmarany ki khushiyan jyada dinon tak nahin rah sakin. kanyakubj raja kanoj amaraj ne yahan ki janata par atyachar karana shuroo kar diya. dharmarany ki janata ne raja ko samajhaya ki hanumanaji is nagari ke rakshak hain. ap unake prakop se daren, lekin raja ne janata ki bat nahin mani. raja se trast hokar phir kuchh log kathin yatra kar rameshvar pahunche, jahan hanumanaji se anurodh kiya aur dharmarany ki raksha karane ka prabhu shriram ka vachan yad dilaya. hanumanaji ne vachan ki raksha karate hue raja ko sabak sikhaya aur nagar ki raksha ki.

alauddin khilazi ka akraman

snvath 1356 men gujarat ke antim rajapoot raja karanadev vaghela ke alauddin khilazi se harane ke bad muslimon ne gujarat par kabja kar liya. alauddin khilazi ne modhera par bhi akraman kiya, parantu yahan ke uchch varg ke log ladaee men bhi parngat the. unhonne alauddin khilazi ka dat kar mukabala kiya, lekin ve alauddin ke ek shadayntr men phns ge aur modhera par alauddin khilazi ka adhikar ho gaya. isake bad luteron ne nagar v soory mndir ko bhari kshati pahunchaee. vartaman 'dharmarany' (modhera) men matngi ke vishal mandir ke alava kuchh nahin hai, yahan ke mool nivasi apana yah mool sthan chhod kar door bas ge hain. mndir jirnoddhar ka kary man ke bhakton ke sahayog se pragati par hai. gujarat ke vikas ke sath hi yahan ki sadakon ka bhi vikas hua hai, jis karan yahan pahunchana ab sugam ho gaya hai.

darshaniy sthal

modhera apani sthapaty kala aur snskriti ke lie prasiddh raha hai. aj bhi yahan kee dharmik drishti se mahattvapoorn hindoo dharmik sthal hain. yahan ke pramukh darshaniy sthalon men pramukh hain-

soory mandir

'modhera soory mandir' gujarat men pushpavati nadi ke tat par sthit hai, jisaki pavitrata aur bhavyata ka varnan skandapuran aur brahmapuran men bhi milata hai. prachin samay men is prasiddh sthan ka nam 'dharmarany' tha. lnka ke raja ravan ka vadh karane ke pashchath bhagavan shriram ne brahman hatya se mukti ke lie yahan par ygy kiya tha aur kalantar 1026 eesvi men solnki naresh bhimadev pratham nen 'modhera soory mandir' ka nirman karavaya. mandir men kamal ke phool roopi vishal chabootare par bhagavan soory dev ki ऱth par aroodh suvarn ki pratima thi. mandir parisar men ek vishal sarovar tatha 52 stambhon par tika ek mandap tha. 52 stambh varsh ke saptahon ke pratik hain. stambhon tatha divaron par khajuraho ki tarah ki akarshak shilpakala thi. shilpakala ki sundarata ka ankalan dekh kar hi kiya ja sakata hai. aj yah sthal bhi hinduon ki upeksha ka pratik chihn ban kar rah gaya hai.

  • muslim akranta alauddin khilazi ke akraman ke dauran is mandir ko kafi nukasan pahuncha tha. yahan par usane lootapat ki aur mandir ki anek moortiyon ko khndit kar diya tha. aj is mandir ke snrakshan ki jimmedari 'bharatiy puratatv vibhag' ke pas hai. samay ke thapedon ko sahate hue bhi yah mandir apani bhavyata ka praman prastut karata hai. vartaman men is mandir men pooja-archana adi karana nishedh hai.

mataji ka mandir
