Sundeep & Bedabrata
Mount Abu was originally called Arbudanchal, named after Arbuda Devi. We visited the arbuda temple which is at a higher altitude and can be reached by climbing up a flight of stairs. This was the last place we visited before ending out trip of Mount Abu and heading for Delhi. It took us approximately 20 minutes to reach the shrine using stairs. And we are glad that we made the effort since this was a cave temple. We had to crouch through a very narrow hole to enter the Sanctom Santorum that housed a gorgeous stone image in black decked with ornaments and silk. The goddess apparently is one of the forms of Shakti and is extremely revered among the locals.
