MOUNT ABU : A unique destination for adventure and eco tourism.
 
 
During the period of the Maharaja's, it was used as a place of leisure by the royalties and semi-royalties. The place presents an interesting contrast of British style bungalows and holiday lodges of the royals (Thikhana) with various tribal communities residing amidst the thick lush forest on the hills surrounding the region.
The flora and fauna enjoys the adulation of the tourist to the fullest. The highest point of the Aravali is the 'Guru
Shikhar' with a vast sanctuary that shelters a number of species like langur, wild boars, Sambar, leopards and many more along with a number of flowering plants and trees, which enhance the beauty of the whole scenery. A rich collection of monuments of different religious sects like the famous shrines of Jainism are also found here. The tribal community of this area still maintains its pristine ways of living despite progress of the modern times.
The Delwara temple is famous for its architectural splendour. The intricate carving on the marble stone is simply mesmerizing. A cluster of Hindu temples also marks the land with their historical past.
The Brahmkumari ‘Ashram' is another world famous religious community center
 
 

SIGHT SEEING

 
 
DILWARA TEMPLES [3 kms] :
Mount Abu was an important Vaishnava and Shaivite pilgrim centre up to the 11th century AD. Today, it is recognized the world over for its magnificent Jain temples. No visit to Abu can be complete without a trip to the famed Delwara temples. These temples are the greatest draw of Abu, apart from its salubrious clime. Half hidden by mango groves, their sober exterior belies the wealth of their interior ornamentation. Wondrously
 
carved in marble, the Delwara temples enshrine various Jain tirthankaras (saints). Built between the 11th and 13th century AD, they are famous for their superb carvings in marble.

Vimal Vasahi, the oldest temple, built by Vimal Shah, Minister of a Solanki ruler of Gujarat in 1031 A.D., is dedicated to Adinath, the first of the Jain tirthankaras. Constructed out of white marble from Arasoori Hill, near Ambaji, 23 km from Abu Road , it is an outstanding example of Jain temple architecture.
 
 

The central shrine has an image of Rishabhdev and a large courtyard with 52 small shrines, each housing a beautiful statue of a tirthankara with 48 elegantly carved pillars from the entrance to the courtyard.

The Luna Vasahi Temple , dedicated to the 22nd tirthankara, Neminath, was built in 1231 AD by two brothers - Vastupal and Tejpal, Minister of Raja Virdhavala, a ruler of Gujrat.
 
 
The door casings, friezes, architraves, pillars and the sculptures of porticos are simply astonishing. This structure which is unique would not have been possible without massive effort, inspired commitment and exceptional workmanship. Rewards in the form of silver and gold were offered to the workers. The most striking feature of this Jain
 
temple is the marble pendant in the dome of the porch. It drops from the ceiling like an enchanting cluster of half-open lotuses with cups, so finely carved that they appear to be transparent. Timing : 1200 to 1500 hrs for Tourists. Entry free. Photography not allowed.
