Mount Abu is a charming hill station and historical site located in the south west of Rajasthan. The only hill station of the state, and the erstwhile summer resort of the Rajput kings and British rulers of yore, it's a place where world-renowned Dilwara Jain Temples exist alongside myriad Hindu temples, British style bungalows, royal structures, tribal populace and rich flora and fauna.
Mount Abu is mainly known for its architectural excellence of 11th to 13th century-old five Dilwara Jain temples, which are elegantly carved of marble stone. Historical Hindu temples, colossal rocks, beautiful lakes, gardens, parks, view points and cool climate give Mount Abu a distinct identity and that too, against the prevailing dry topography of Rajasthan to make it a tourists delight.
Notable temples in Mount Abu include the Gaumukh Temple, Adhar Devi Temple, Raghunath temple and Shri Raghunathji Temple. Scenic points are many here and among them, the Sunset Point and Honeymoon Point are foremost. Some of worth-visiting gardens and parks here are Ashok Vatika, Gandhi Park, Municipal Park, Terrace Garden, Shaitan Singh Park etc. The Museum and Art Gallery at the Raj Bhawan and Nakki Talab- site with mythical tales- add to the attractions in Mount Abu.
