Surrounded with greenery of the Aravalli Range, Mount Abu is a popular hill station of Rajasthan. An important Jain pilgrim site, the pristine hill station finds its mention in several ancient texts and documents. Once ruled by the Bhils, Solankis and Chauhans, Mt. Abu is an important historical site. During the reign of the British rule, this hill station came to be known as summer capital of Rajasthan. One of the popular landmarks of this small hill station is the iconic Dilwara Temple. Built in the period of 11th to 13th century, these temples are very important in the Jainism. Consisting of five temples dedicated to the Jain Tirthankara?s, the Dilwara Temples are an excellent example of architectural achievement. Apart from the Dilwara Temple, Mt. Abu is famous for being headquarter of the Bramha Kumaris, a group teaching about holistic living. Several followers of the group come to Mt. Abu for a holy retreat and learning more about holistic living from the spiritual gurus. After touring the temples, one can go for boating at the Nakki Taal Lake. Believed to be carved by the gods, this lake provides a stunning view of the surrounding hills of the Aravalli. Watching the sunset from the Sunset point is a must.
