pleasant retreat set amidst the lush forested hills, Mt. Abu is
a green oasis in the barren desertscape thats Rajasthan. Situated
at the southern tip of the Aravali range the hill retreat owes
its cool climate to its rich flora covering the entire hillside
that includes coniferous trees and flowering shrubs. The road
leading to Mount Abu is a curved one characterized by arid region
dotted with huge rocks in weird shapes and high velocity winds.
The only hill station in Rajasthan, Mount Abu is more than just
a summer retreat. Its stunning array of exquisite Dilwara Jain
Temples, dating back 11th- 13th centuries,
make it a popular pilgrimage centre. Abu according
to a legend.stands for the son of Himalayan, deriving its name
from Arbuada,the powerful serpent who rescued Nandi, the sacred
bull of Lord Shiva, from a chasm.
