  • Old temple which is a hit with the locals. The climb is steep and obviously not wheelchair accessible so older people might have to be careful. The temple to the deity is clean and well maintained.  more »

  • Arbuda Devi temple is a beautiful place. There is 350 stairs to climb. It has beautiful views.. and the temple is inside a small cave.
  • Arbuda Devi aka Adhar Devi & it's also believe that this is one of the Shaktipeethas. The famous temple of Arududevi is located in Abu Mountains in Sirohi district of Rajasthan.Abu Mountains have been called arubadgiri or arubudanchal. Arududevi is the goddess Devi of Abu. This ancient temple is located above the residential settlement of Abu mountains at an altitude of 4250 feet. Approximately 450 steps are reached in the temple.In the middle of the mountain, a statue built on a rock, in a cave, the statue of the goddess Durga is installed under the huge rock, which appears to be such that there is no support or standing in the air of the base. Arbudadevi is also known as 'Ardar Devi' due to being seen standing in the way without touching the land.devotees have to sit through the narrow path of the cave. Near the entrance to the temple cave. Overall it's must visit place in mt. Abu. Jai Mata ji...
  • One of the 51 'shaktipith'-s of Devi. Mobile phones and cameras not allowed in main house of temple. Thankfully, they provide place and token system to keep your stuff. It is free service. Best time to visit is Morning aarti. Aarti time changes with season. Approx time to climb: 15-20 minutes.
  • It's an old temple with collection of some broken idols because of landslide.... there is the 'Gomukh' from which water runs naturally and continuously....and you can come and find your peace here...
