  ARASUR - AMBAJI SHRINE

It is this Goddess that fulfilled the desire of Rana Pratap in coming out unscathed from Idargadh, when besieged by tile formidable Moghul emperor Akbar. It is in vicinity of this, the holy river Saraswathi rises near Arbuda Parvatha and integral part of Aravalli range deemed more ancient than the Himalayas. Adjacent to this lies the world renowned temple dedicated to Eswar, known as Koteswara Mahadev.

As irony would have it, here there in neither any idol, nor it painting of an image of any kind of the holy MOTHER but only a yantra is installed and it is given the appearance the of goddess with the help of shimmering dress and floral decoration. The consummate artistry of the priests-the Nagar Brahmanas makes the yantra appear as the veritable all-graceful, all-adorable, all-loving MOTHER Sakti that joins the  plams of ardent devotees at its very sight it self. Obeisance to this conventional practise that has become primarily responsible to bringing lacs of devotees throughout the year and making a house-hold deity and much venerated deity, even by the incarnated like the Almighty God Sri Krishna. For every Gujarati, she is the Pratyaksha daivam and is answering every call round the clock. Mighty rulers and renowned saint singers are drawn towards her feet since time immemorial and that made in this holy kshetra, one of the most visit-worthy shrines both by Sakteyas and bhaktas of every sect and brand.
