Saranyu is also known as Sanjana and Sandhya is a mother goddess and the daughter of the divine architect, Lord Viswakarma. Saranyu and her sister Chaya are the consorts of Lord Surya Bhagavan.
Children of Mata Saranyu:
Saranyu was mentioned in the ancient Rigveda and was considered as a noble goddess, who showers her grace on to her devotees along with her consort Lord Surya Bhagavan.
Once, she couldn’t bear the heat of Sun god, and hence she created Mata Chaya through her shadow, and went to the earth and performed penance. Initially, Lord Surya was not aware of the incident, and hence he thought that Chaya was his original wife Mata Saranyu, and through their union, the great Judgement God, Lord Shani Dev was born. After some time, Lord Surya got to know about the past incidents, and brought back his consort Saranyu from the earth, and happily living with both of his consorts in the Surya Loka.
Let us worship Mata Saranyu and be blessed.
