One of the best pilgrimage destinations in Gujarat

Ambaji is one of beautiful places in Gujarat. It is also one of the best pilgrimage places in Gujarat. Ambaji is the place where Goddess Amba resides, hence the name Ambaji. One can go to Ambaji with car or bus. Ambaji is crowded during vacations and during Navratri. There are good hotels to stay and food is generally nice. Also there is ropeway to enjoy too.

Drive down to Ambaji

I drove down in my Honda City from Ahmedabad to Ambaji. The place is famous in Gujarat and Rajasthan for the temple of Goddess Ambaji, an incarnation of Devi Durga. The place has taken the name of Amba mataji.
I drove down with my family, from Ahmedabad by my personal car and it took about 3 and half hours to reach the place, about 190 kms from Ahmedabad. The route to drive is via Gandhinagar- Himmatnagar- Idar- GED Brahma - Ambaji. The road is very good. Came back on the same day on the same route after having a darshan and a short visit to the Gabbar parvat.
On Gabbar, another temple of Devi mata is a must see. A rope way connectivity is available to reach the top of the hill. The current charges for both ways is Rs. 92 per person.
We cherish the memories of the visit.

Ambaji Overview

Ambaji is a holy town situated on the foothills of the Arasur Hills, in Banaskantha District of Gujarat. The township received its name from the Ambaji Mata Temple, which is situated in Gabbar, also known as Gabbargadh.

Abode of the Mother Goddess Ambaji, the site has mentions in Holy Scriptures. As per the scripture 'Tantra Chudamani', the site is identified as the place where the heart of the goddess fell. Unlike other revered Hindu worship centres, the temple of Ambaji has no idols in the sanctums. Belonging to the 51 Shakti Peethas, the centre is also known as 'Arasuri Amba'. The goddess dwells in the form of a triangular encryption with a syllable known as 'Vishwa Yantra'.

A holy temple of Maa Ambe, the Mother Goddess, is one of the legendary pilgrim centres for Hindus. Along with the temples and shrines, the location in the backdrop of the Aravalli Ranges provides an ideal environment for solitude seekers.

The hamlet is largely inhabited by the Bhil and Garasia tribal communities. On their visit, travellers can explore tribal sites and their culture by embarking upon a jeep safari, camel ride and cart safari. Visitors can experience the tribal dance and artistic performance of folklore at night.

Tourists travelling to Ambaji can board flights, trains and buses. Flights are available to the Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel International Airport, which is the nearest airport, situated in Ahmedabad. Tourists can board trains to Abu Road Station, which is the nearest railhead situated at a distance of 20 kilometres from Ambaji. State owned buses render services from places like Ahmedabad, Abu Road Station, Mt Abu, Delhi, Palanpur and Himmat Nagar.

The festive season of Navratri is celebrated with great enthusiasm, during which a fair is organised. Along with this, travellers throng the destination during Purnima fair held on the full moon day in the month of Bhadrapad, Chaitra and Kartik. October to April is considered the ideal time to visit the destination as the climate is pleasant and cool.
