Ambaji is a small village in the Danta Taluk and Banas Kantha district of the state of Gujarat. Located close to the Gujarat Rajasthan border, it is situated about 179 kilometres from the city of Ahmedabad.

It is an important religious place because of the acclaimed temple of Goddess Amba. It is in fact one of the most important Shaktipeeths of the country, and is situated on the Arasur hill. The place is picturesque with greenery and the views of the Aravalli range around it.

The temple of Goddess Amba is the main attraction of the village and is the reason why devotees and pilgrims from all across the county visit this small village. It is one of the most ancient and respected temples of the country and there are many legends surrounding the temple’s history.

Goddess Amba is believed to be a form or Parvati and is considered as a place worshipping female power. The unique thing about this temple is that it does not have any idol. The Gabbar Hills which is nearby is a beautiful scenic place and can be reached via cable car from Ambaji.
