We had a wonderful trip (contd. yet again :D )

Day 4: Dec 28'07 : Mount Abu
We had expected Mount Abu to be much colder than what it was. Everyone had told us it would be quite cold at this time of the year but I was not wearing sweater during the daytime. For a kid a jacket or a light sweater would have been fine. So it worked good for us! Rest of the story by the pics:

  1. I have been to Mt Abu when I was very young - probably 3rd grade or something. I don't remember a thing though. I have been to Ranakpur couple of times and I do remember a Jain temple there. Your pictures are great!

  3. You know what, quit your job and become a professional photographer/writer and write a Travelogue or some book.

    You are a deadly combination of an awesome photographer n a very insightful/articulate/sensitive writer.

  13. Dear,Friend
    Mount Abu is situated in southwest end of Rajasthan. Mount Abu is the only hill station in Rajasthan, Mount

    Abu is more than just a summer retreat. Its stunning array of exquisite Dilwara Jain Temples, dating back

    11th- 13th centuries, make it a popular pilgrimage centre.
    The history of Mount Abu is as diverse as the city itself. It was once a part of the Chauhan kingdom of

    Rajasthan and served as a summer resort for the Rajput kings of the region.
