AMBAJI
The Renowned Sakti Peetha of Gujarat 

RANA PRATAP'S EPISODE

The matchless valour and inimitable tenacity of Rana Pratap, the Rajput prince ruling Idargadh is well known, and he was immortalized by his contemporaries for his relentless opposition to Akbar, his sworn enemy. During his self-exile, he decided to see his Rani in the palace, but knew it was humanly impossible to hood wink the Moghul army besieging the foil and was watching his movements with such vigilance that none but miracle could enable him to accomplish his wish. The brave prince started his secret visit on a dark night. As fortune departing from him, wooed the Moghuls, misfortune appeared in the form of heavy down pour and barred his way with a flooded river. His nocturnal venture thus further dispirited him. But his strong resolve sought refuge at the feet of Ambika, the compassionate MOTHER. fraying devoutly to Ambaji with a pledge to place his pet sword at Her feet, he embarked upon his venture. Would the all-merciful MOTHER, ever let her devotee down? Never! Outwitting the strict Vigilance Officers and his contingent, he went into the fort, met his Rani, spent time with her and returned, as planned. Unscathed at it. Attributing his success to the MOTHER'S grace, he placed his life-saving sword at the feet of MOTHER. That great sword thus offered by the mighty Rajput Prince is now in the temple, and held in high esteem as a relic of a warrior prince, who offered it
in token of his devotion and recognition of her powers.
