MOUNT ABU
The Fount of Indian Culture

KHARTAR VASIHI TEMPLE

This is located outside the compound; but its glory and history are all the more great and awe-inspiring, rather undreamt of by any in the world. It evokes- instant homage to the divine sculptors, whose dedication is second to none but to itself, for they were no mere hired manual laborers, but belonging to the divine community of artisans. They were as inspired as the patrons. In token of their matchless devotion, they built a temple of their own, using the discarded material. In their leisure .at it. What a dedication! Neither human ear has heard, nor the eye witnessed such devotion, and the like of which never exists anywhere in any world, nor in any age. What is more, those rare sculptors dedicated that three storied marvellous temple to their Guru by name Khatargacha, and so it is known as Khatargacha temple, or artisan temple.

The other two were built by Bhimshah and the speciality lies in the fact that the idol of Pitalhar temple was made of brass and weighs 4000 kgs. Besides feasting the eyes and souls of the devotees thus, the present day Jain philanthropists in charge of maintaining this group are catering to the visiting pilgrims by giving free accommodation etc.
