Worship of the mother goddess is one of the deepest beliefs in the minds of various nations and peoples throughout human history. Ancient civilizations such as the Iranians and the Turks have long had this religion and the beliefs and customs related to this myth still remain in the culture of these tribes; considering the closeness of the cultural and historical background of Iranians and Turks, a study on their mythology can  give us lots of information of the history and culture of both nations; Therefore, the aim of the present study is a comparative study of the mother goddess in Iranian and Turkish mythology and the main question is what is the relationship between the mother goddess in Iranian and Turkish mythology? The method of this research is comparative-analytical. Findings show that despite the differences in some aspects attributed to the Iranian and Turkish mother goddesses in the myths of the two nations, there are many important similarities between the concept and function of this myth among Iranians and Turks.
