» Dilwara JainTemples
Dilwara Jain Temple, Mount AbuThese remarkable Jain temples are Mount Abu's main attraction and among the finest examples includes two temples in which the art of carving marble reached unsurpassed heights. The older of the temples is the ' Vimal Vasahi ', built in 1031 and dedicated to the first tirthankar, Adinath. In the front of the temple stands the 'House of Elephants', with figures of elephants marching in procession to the temple entrance. The later ' Tejpal temple ' is dedicated to Neminath, the 22nd tirthankar, and was built in 1230 by the brothers Tejpal and Vastupal. The carving is so fine that, in places, the marble becomes almost transparent.
» Nakki Lake
The lake is picturesquely set amidst hills, 1200 mtrs. above sea level and is believed to have been carved out by the Gods with their nails. It is a popluar spot for boating. The surrounding hills have several areas of interest.
» Toad Rock

This enormous rock carved by nature overhangs the Nakki Lake and appears like a toad ready to dive into the lake.

» Adhar Devi Temple
This is a beautiful temple chiselled out of a huge rock, formed by a natural cleft. It is also known as the Arbuda Devi Temple. A climb of 360 steps up the hill, leads to the place where homage to the Goddess can be paid. It is believed that the image of the Goddess was originally hanging in mid air, hence the name Adhar Devi.
» Gaumukh Temple (Vashistha's Ashram)
Many sages and seers had their retreat on Mt.Abu, the most famous being sage Vashistha. To regenerate the human race, he performed a 'yagna ' or magic fire from which were born the Agnikula clans of Chauhans, Solankis, Parmars and Pratihar. A natural spring that flows out through a sculpted cow's head, gives the shrine its name.
