Story of Jasma Devi

Jasma of the Ode Tribe of Gujarat who chose to become the wife and work-mate of a simple pond-digger man called 'Rooda'. she is remembered for her loyalty to her husband, for fearless conduct on the face of the King Siddhraj Jaisingh and for her love of the rugged life of the nomadic odes.

According to legend, in an earlier birth, 'Jasma Devi' was an Apsara (celestial nymph) and had been sent to earth by Indra to distract the meditation of sage Nala. The enraged sage cursed her. " she would be born in the nomadic community of Odes and be forced to marry an nomadic man".

The King Siddhraj Jaisingh's chanced to see Jasma and described what he saw. when he returned to the Court. The king has to see the dazzling beauty again. When he did, he was captivated by her beauty and offered to marry her to make her the queen of Gujarat. Jasma looked him in disdain, spurned his offer and rebuked him for having cherished such evil thoughts. she refused Siddharaj's advances and committed sati to protect her honour. It is believed that her curse made the tank waterless and the king without an heir to the kingdom of Gujarat. Thus protecting her dignity. The Jasma Devi Temple was constructed in her memory near a tank called 'Sahasra linga Talav' located near Pattan, Gujarat in 12th century. ()
