MOUNT ABU
The Fount of Indian Culture

GAU  MUKH AND VASISTHA ASRAM

Gau Mukh temple is one among the ancient temples. It is situated on an elevated place with a small tank in the fore. It is always full with pure water, which falls through a cow's mouth carved out of granite. A little farther ahead blow lies the famous Vasistha Asram, the immortal sage of the epic age. The statues of muni Vasistha with Rama and Lakslnnana on either side and Antnadhati in the front are installed in the middle of the courtyard. A marble statue of Nanditu is put up outside the asram and they stand to testify to the truth of the legend that Abu owes its glory to Vasistha, and is associated with the celestials. And it is from this asram's sacrificial Fire-pit, the Agnikula Kshatrias emerged. Legend lures the pilgrims and tends their heads before the divinities. There is pond here bearing the name of Naga Thirtha proclaiming to the world of its miraculous power of fertility. A dip in it relieves one from the curse of barrenness. Barrenness is believed to be the effect of sarpa sapa, for having killed snakes in the previous birth. A bath in this offsets that dosha; for, it is in this place alone Uttanka obtained Karnabharanas from the serpent king. It is considered very sacred, and so the thronging of the childless persons throughout the year.
