Machail Mata :

The Maa Durga Sathan popularly known as Machail Mata derived its name from the village Machel where the temple is located. The village Machel is located in the district Kishtwar of Jammu and Kashmir (India).

In 1834, Jorawar Singh had sought blessings of Maa Durga at Machel before advancing to Laddakh in 1834. Zorawar Singh had no trouble in crossing the mountain ranges and entering Ladakh through the source of the Suru River where his 5000 men defeated an army of local Botis. After his miraculous victory he became faithful devotee of Maa Durga. Maa Durga is supposed to present in ‘sakshat roop’ in the Temple Of Machail.
