MOUNT ABU
The Fount of Indian Culture

HISTORICITY

Enigma seems peeping at the reader of the history of Rajasthan, for the prime reason that there is a free mixing of fable with facts. It has been a haven for all religious preachers from time immemorial, and concrete evidence of their living and preaching is available in plenty. Many major religions seem to have vied with one another to establish their respective monasteries for the propagation of their dharma, and dedication of shrines to their istadevathas. Jains, Sakthas, Vaishnavites and Saivites built many marvellous temples to perpetuate their fame and carry on their service activities, and they stand to relate many of their selfless ministrations. But definite date of the rulers begins with the Paramaras, one of the four clans of Rajputs, who made Abu as their capital, and from that period gradually its importance rose to the pinnacle, despite many rulers succeeded them. Many sturdy hands held the scepter and wielded power from here for centuries. In 1845 it was brought under the British sway and continued as the head quarters of the British Government Political agent of Rajasthan. After Independence, it was restored to the state of Rajasthan in 1956 and since then, it is slowly gaining its immortal glory and luring all classes of people from within and without.
