Khodiyar Maa is the Hindu goddess who appeared in the story of Mamaniya Gadhvi in about AD 700. Khodaldham is underconstuctiom temple of "maa khodiyar" approx area of 50 bigha.

Cow-herd Mamaniya Charan lives a poor lifestyle in Gardhana village, Gujarat, India along with his wife. Although they have been married for 10 years they have not been able to conceive and as a result both are shunned and mocked at by the entire community excluding Maharaj Adiraj, a friend of Mamaniya. But when Adiraj himself forbids Mamaniya from coming to the palace as he brings bad-luck, Mamaniya prays to Bhagwan Shri Bholeynath, who is pleased by his devotion and together with Devi Maa Parvati appears before him. When Mamaniya demands an offspring, Bholeynath tells that he is not destined to bear children, but on Parvatiji's suggestion he asks Mamaniya to approach Naagraj in Pataal Lok. Mamaniya undertakes the journey, meets with Naagraj, his wife and 8 children, and after listening to Mamaniya's plea instantly asks him to take all his children. A delighted Mamaniya returns home, tells the good news to his wife, and after a few days 8 children - 7 girls and 1 boy - miraculously appear in their house. The entire community and Adiraj himself share in their joy. When the children grow up, one of their daughters, Jaanbai, who walks with a limp, starts displaying supernatural powers and is re-named Devi Maa Khodiyar. When news of this gets out, the family begin to face challenges from Raj Purohit, the Mahamantri, and a shape-changing demon, Dankasur, who will leave no stone unturned to discredit Mamaniya, Devi Maa Khodiyar, and the entire Charan family.

Importance of Idol worship: Idols are not the idle fancies of sculptors, but shining channels through which the heart of the devotee is attracted to and flows towards God. Though the image is worshipped, the devotee feels the presence of the Lord in it and pours out his devotion unto it. Regular worship, Puja and other modes of demonstrating our inner feeling of recognition of Divinity in the idol unveils the Divinity latent in it. This is truly a wonder and a miracle. The picture comes to life. The idol speaks. It will answer your questions and solve your problems. The God in you has the power to awaken the latent Divinity in the idol. The lives of Mirabai, Sant Tukaram, Shri Ramakrishna Paramhansa and Shri Yogananda are a few instances to prove the point. They proved beyond doubt that idol worship has its own brighter side and through simple faith and intense devotion one can realize God through it.

Idols are the "finite representation of the Infinite".  As per Vishnu Samhita (ch 29, v 55-7), persuasively endorses the use of imagery (idols) and puts it: "Without a form how can God be mediated upon? If (He is) without any form, where will the mind fix itself? When there is nothing for the mind to attach itself to, it will slip away from meditation or will glide into a state of slumber. Therefore the wise will meditate on some form, remembering, however, that the form is a superimposition and not a reality."
