It is both, the myth that surround the Nakki Lake and its natural beauty, that make it a great sightseeing and tourist hub in Mount Abu. The name of the lake ‘Nakki’ comes from the Hindi word ‘nakh’ which when translated into English means ‘nails.’ The myth goes that the Gods had dug the earth using their nails and a stream of water burst forth here. Nakki Lake is surrounded by hills on all sides and attracts those who wish to be enveloped in nature’s lap. The atmosphere here is like that of a carnival with a number of stalls selling balloons, ice cream, juices and souvenirs around the lake. As a matter of fact, this place is great for a day out with the family.

One of the architectural wonders of the world, the Dilwara Jain Temples is sometimes considered architecturally superior than the Taj Mahal also. These temples are surrounded by lush green hills and look like nothing extra ordinary from the outside. As you enter the temples, you find human skills displayed at its best. The temples were built during the 11th to 13th century during which time there was no road transport to transport the marble blocks till this height. It is known that the task was done by elephants. The ornamental carvings in the walls, ceilings and pillars of the temple are marvelous. The creativity of artisans even so long ago can leave any one in awe. There are 5 main temples inside that are dedicated to a tirthankara each. These are the Sri Mahavir Swami Temple. Sri Adinath or Vimal Vashi Temple, Shri Parshvanath Temple, Shri Rishabhdaoji or Peethalhar Temple, Shri neminath Ji or Lunaashahi Temple.

A place of great religious reverence to the Jain community, the Dilwara Jain Temple is a set of five temples, all belonging to a different century. The temples are carved out of white marble and depict scenes of Gods and Goddesses and are a must visit for their architectural brilliance. You can also spend a day at Nakki Lake.

The Mount Abu Wildlife Sanctuary is another wonderful way to spend your time on this hill station and can take up your entire day, so do keep yourself free.
