Among the most ancient Sakti-Pithas extant in the state of Gujarat, Ambika of Arasur occupies a place enviable and has a history unrivalled. She is popularly known throughout Gujarat and Maharastra as Ambaji, and is as famous as Tirupati Balaji to advent devotees living in India and abroad. Its catholicity is evidenced by countless worshippers belonging to other religions. like Muslims, Parsis, Jains, Buddhists, besides millions of Hindus of all castes and classes. This place is sanctified by the presence of Mother Sakti's left breast that fell on Mahavishnu's cutting the dead body of Sati with his Sudarsana Chakra, when carried by Rudra Shankara on her burning herself in the yogagni, due to unbearable humiliation heaped upon her by none but her own father Dhaksha.

It is this Goddess whose grace enabled Rukmini to secure Krishna as her Pati. It is here on this punyabhumi tonsorial operation for Sri Krishna the eighth incarnation of God Mahavishnu was made with all due favour, it is here the vanquished King Suratha did peance to regain his kingdom and obtained it her Mother's grace, it is this Ambika in her fierce aspect that punished the greatest builder Vimal shah for not acknowledging her glory.
