The Gabbar hill is near the origin of the noted Vedic river Saraswati, on the hills of Arasur, that is at the south-west side to ancient hills of Aravalli and at the height of 1,600 feet from the sea level. The steep hill of Gabbar is very difficult to climb. The pilgrims have to climb 300 stone steps from the foot-hills which leads to a narrow dangerous track. This track needs to be climbed in order to reach the main temple.
Ambaji temple is considered to be one of the major Shakti Peeths of India. According to the legend, the heart of Devi Sati's body fell at the top of the hill of Gabbar. The holy temple of "Arasuri Ambaji", as it is known for being situated in the hills of Arasur, consists of no idol of the holy goddess. The "Shree Visa Yantra" is worshiped as the main idol. The Yantra cannot be seen with bare eyes. To worship this Visa Shree Yantra, one has to tie a bandage over the eyes. Every year on Bhadarvi Poornima, a big mela is held, and people from all over the country come here to worship Maa Ambe in the month of July. Also during Diwali, the whole Ambaji Temple is decorated with lights. There is a mention of Ambaji in the Mahabharata too. The story mentions that the goddess Ambaji was worshiped by the Pandavas during their exile.
