AMBAJI
The Renowned Sakti Peetha of Gujarat 

HISTORICITY

There are many inscriptions that narrate numerous endowments made to this outstanding shrine by mighty rulers either at her behest or by her grace. And they date back to 8th century A.D. Credit goes to Gujarat for having nurtured Pasupata cult of Lakulisa, the supposed incarnation of Lord Siva, born at Kayavaroha in about the 2nd century A.D. He was responsible for establishing his Pasupata Math at Somnath. As worship of Sakti being closely connected
with that of Siva, there is abundant scope for the former to reach all corners of the world soon. The story goes that Siddaraja Jaysimha installed 1,000 Siva lingas around Sahasralinga lake, which he filled with the waters of river Saraswati, in addition to establishing of 108 peethas with Goddess Harsiddha in the centre, which is another name for Ambaji. Though Sakthi is worshipped in countless aspects and names like Lalita, Bala, Tulja, Srikula and Ambika in
Gujarat, the worship of Ambaji takes precedence over others.
