A highly revered pilgrimage which attracts thousand of pilgrims
every year, Junagadh is one of the most picturesque town in India. Dotted
with historical monuments and religious places, the small town situated at
the base of the holy Girnar mountain makes an interesting destination. The
pilgrimage site of Mount Girnar is a popular place to visit. An old wall,
much of which is now missing, surrounds the city.
At the summit of the mountain is the temple of Amba Mata. This Hindu temple
is dedicated to an incarnation of the mother Goddess. Newly married couples
come here to be blessed by the Goddess and thereby be assured of eternal
conjugal bliss. Dating back to the 12th century, it is said that a visit to
this temple guarantees a happy marriage. There are good views from the top
of the mountain.
