  ARASUR - AMBAJI SHRINE

THE TEMPLE:

The present temple lies on the terrace of a building of unusual dimensions. Renovation is undertaken and there are proofs to show that a shrine of rare architectural marvel would soon emerge making the devotees gape at its beauty and glory on completion. The entire space now is littering, as it were, with building materials that there is no adequate space ever for forming queues to reach the feet of the MOTHR. Yet, the unending influx of devout pilgrims and ardent worshippers standing in long rows, speak volumes of compassionate attitude Amaji has on her devotees. The Gujrati type of making up the deity with colourful flowers etc., bends the head of every visitor invariably.

There are many types of prayer services to the deity, but the one offered at noon is of great significance. There is a great craze on the part of the visitor to avail this spectacular ritual arati and they wait for hours in the enclosed terrace. In the evenings, Durga Saptasati is chanted with unbounded favour. For preparing naivedya and prasada only ghee is used, and celibacy in strictly observed here.
