Mount Abu Tour

 Mt. Abu is the Rajasthan’s only hill station that is a 1200m high plateau situated in the south of state, close to the Gujrat border. It is a popular hot season retreat from the plains of Rajasthan and Gujrat. This place has also got a famous university known as the Brahma Kumaris Spiritual University. A mostly Indian visitor includes newly wedded couples who come for their honeymoons to enjoy the pleasant climate and easy going pace. Although this place is not as cool as it used to be, due to increased developments, construction of hotels. But this place has still retained its green charm. Mt. Abu also has a number of noteworthy temples, particularly, the Dilwara group of Jain temples, 5 km. away. This is a very important pilgrimage centre for Janis. This temple has got excellent marble carvings, which are best among those found in Rajasthan. Also, like many hill stations Mts. Abu has its own lake known as Nakki Lake. According to the legends, Mt. Abut is as old as the Himalayas. Mt. Abu is a good place to simply wander around at leisure. It is a hilly plateau about 22 km long and 6 km. wide.

Prime Sites :
-Mount AbuGaumukh Temple -
A natural spring flowing through a sculpted cow’s head gives the shrine its name. The famous ‘yagna’ of sage Vashishtha was performed here. A beautifully sculpted hill temple of Arbuada-the mighty serpent stands against the beautiful backdrop. Nearby is the magnificent marble image of Nandi, the celestial bull rescued by Arbuada.



-Dilwara Temple Mount AbuDilwara Jain Temple -
These remarkable Jain temples are Mt Abu's main attraction and among the finest examples of Jain architecture in India. The Complex includes two temples in which the art of carving marble reached unsurpassed heights.

The older of the temples is the Vimal Vasahi, built and dedicated to the first tirthankar, Adinath. The central shrine has an image of Adinath, each with a Buddha-like cross-legged image. Forty eight elegantly carved pillars form the entrance to the courtyard. In front of the temple stands the House of Elephants, with figures of elephants marching in procession to the temple entrance.

The later Tejpal Temple is dedicated to Neminath, the 22nd tirthankar, and was built in 1230 by the brothers Tejpal and Vastupal. Although the Tejpal Temple is important as an extremely old and complete example of a Jain temple, its most notable feature is the brilliant intricacy and delicacy of the marble carving is so fine that in places the marble becomes almost transparent. In particular, the lotus flower which hangs from the center of the dome, is an astonishing piece of work. The temple employs several full-time stone carvers to maintain and restore the work.


-Nakki Lake , Mount AbuNakki lake -
Nakki lake is virtually in the heart of Mt Abu and is a big attraction with tourist. The lake takes its name from the legend that it was scooped out by a god, using only his nails or nakh. It's a pleasant stroll around the lake - look for the strange rock formations. The best known, Toad Rock looks just like Nun Rock, Nandi rock or Camel Rock require more imagination. The 14th century Raghunath temple stands beside the lake. You can hire your own boat.
On the lake is a dilapidated concrete boat-shaped snack bar (only serving tea and coffee).
