MOUNT ABU
The Fount of Indian Culture

ANTIQUITY

Mythological evidence found in abundance stands in proof of the unearthly glory of this hill, forming a earl of the Aravalli range of mountains. Its antiquity bearing the vestiges of the visitation and habitation of the celebrities dates from Satya yuga, when cosmic beings walked on this soil along with humans gaily. The vanaparva of Mahabharata contains many references to it and it was called Arbuda
Thirtha, named after Arbuda, the son of Himalaya. It narrates that once Uttanka obtained a pair of Karnabharanas-ear rings from Saudasa's wife, for presenting them to Ahalya, the wife of his guru Gautham token of his veneration. To his misfortune They were carried off to the nether world by Taksha, the king of snake. With a view to wrest the lost, he dug a big hole atop this hill to reach the place of the stealer. And that wide chase was left uncovered later.
