AMBAJI
The Renowned Sakti Peetha of Gujarat 

For preparing naivedya and prasada only ghee is used, and celibacy is strictly observed here. Impurity of any kind, or irreverence of unrecognizable type too is said to enrage the Goddess. So, utmost devotion seems surging from the pious visages and demeanor of the visitors, whose number crosses several thousands every day. The Navaratris of Aswin and Chaitra are sacred to the Goddess, and during these holy days, many types of devotional activities, like singing garbas, performing Bhavias, establishing of Kumbhas take place, when the entire devout Gujarati people participate lustily. Together with these, on the full and new moon Astami days of every month, several kinds of special Pujas are offered to the MOTHER. So, every day is a special day, rather every moment an auspicious moment in this holy shrine, which is only to be seen and enjoyed than clothed in words. The other object of worship here is Lord Ganesh. His huge size and shape attract one and all, and in fact, he is worshipped first on reaching the temple. The innumerable garlands and unquenchable camphor flames before him testify to the devotion, the people are extending to this Vigna Vinayaka, the first son of Mother Sati called Ambaji here.
