Yeah true. Once it was part of the Chauhan kingdom and they treated it as a summer retreat. It also used to be the favourite summer destination for the British. Sophia, have you been to this hill?

No Abhinav, I have never visited this hill but if ever any opportunity arrives I will surely grab. Actually, I have a habit of reading articles during free time and that day I came across this article so thought of sharing.

Jain scriptures claim that Lord Mahavira had visited the city. So, one will also find lots of Jain temples in Mount Abu.

Apart from history, the religious tourism of Mount Abu also attracts people. This only hill station in Rajasthan is home to several Hindu and Jain temples. These temples are quite popular amongst the people of India. Then there is Mount Abu Wildlife Sanctuary which is also a nice place to visit.
