Situated on the Arasur hill near Mount Abu, Ambaji is one of the most important places of pilgrimage in Gujarat, built of the finest quality of marble. It is the principal shrine of the goddess-Amba and is recognised as one of the original Shakti Pithas. It attracts pilgrims in numbers beyond comprehension and large number of devotees assemble at this temple on the occasions of four purnima fairs held every year on the full moon day of Kartik, Chaitra, Bhadrapad and Aso. In the vicinity of Ambaji are the well-known Jain temples of Kumbhariya and Gabbar, a steep hill on the peak of which are footprints of Goddess. During the holy month of Bhadrapad, devotees trek hundreds of miles on foot to reach the temple.
