Lord Matai Dev was born to ‘Punvat Devi’ and Ludangdev. Like his forefathers, he was also a sacred learned man having knowledge of all branches of studies including medicine. He continued the legacy of Baarmati-Panth with same zeal and enthusiasm. He played a very prominent role in the formation of Princely dynasty of Jadeja clan (a worrier class of Indian Kshatriyas) in the Kutch-Sindh region. His orders were obeyed by all Jadejas as a call of God. The supreme religious power of ordaining someone as King was conferred upon to Lord Maatai-Dev. This indeed was a historical phenomenon in India, as this prestigious supreme power of ordainment was reserved only for the high caste Brahmins. He had also performed 12 years rigorous meditation (tap) at Matangrai (Anjar). After his heavenly abode, his body is buried at Bhadra-Sindh (now in Pakistan).
