I was talking about Achalgarh. Knowledge was enhanced by a makeshift stall owner nearby Shri Achaleshwar Mahadev temple. Shri Adeshwar Jain temple and Gopichand ki Gufa (cave) on top of mountain a must visit place. Thank you said I and on the way towards Jain temple as well as Cave.
Here I would like to guide you the way for Jain temple as well as cave is next to Achaleshwar Mahadev temple. If you are having two wheeler you can drive up to Jain temple specially if you are with older people. A steep slope maybe tiring to walk for few. Once slope is finished 250 steps to reach the temple.
Shoes were removed hands were washed as we enter temple-area. Temple-Office is at the entrance gate if you want to visit. After climbing few steps we meet Bhola Ram, Mohanlal and Moti Singh ji. Upon query they in short narrated the history and festival at Shri Adeshwar Jain temple.
550 years old temple built by Dhanasa Seth mahamantri of Maharana Kumbha. He also built the temple of Ranakpur. Total there are fourteen idols weighing 1444 man (40kg = 1 man) made with Gold and Panch Dhatu. Nine idols on one floor and four idols on another floor. Shri Adeshwar Bhagwan, Shri Shantinath Bhagwan, Shri Parasnath Bhagwan few names of bhagwan.
Fagan (fagun) Sud Dasam 5 days before Holi festival
Yes, there is dharamshala for devotees to stay. Rs. 200 per night the charge – I was told by the office.
As I was hungry I question whether food is available or not. Yes was the reply. Rs. 35 per thali. Two thali please. And we walk towards bhojanshala and it is important to mention Food was excellent and if you are visiting Mount Abu if possible visit Achalgarh to visit Shri Adeshwar Jain temple. Thank you.
