Description

Kailash Tekari is located on the Khedbrahma highway at a distance of 1.9 km from Ambaji. Tourists visit this site to witness the beautiful Shivalaya placed on the peak which can be reached by climbing the tekari. The Mahadev temple situated at this place has a Stone Gate which was built by the temple trust. The Shri Arasuri Ambaji Mata Devasthan Trust manages the temple and also its administrative requirements. Another popular attraction of this site is the sunset point known as the Kailash Hill Sunset.

 

Nestled atop this hillock is Mangalya Van, a unique garden that is of late drawing hordes of tourists. One has to climb steps to reach Mangalya Van, which is also surrounded by water bodies. The van was developed by the forest department and its USP is a unique Rashi Van' (astrological garden) within and a garden of plants, which astrologers say have the same effect as stones on one's life.

 

All those who come to Mangalya Van invariably enquire about the effects of plants on sun signs and want to take back home a sapling that favours their zodiac sign. They grow it in their backyard or in the vicinity of their house. Around 700 to 800 people visit Mangalya Van every day and on holidays, the number crosses 1,000. Its popularity is picking up fast. Each of the 12 zodiac signs have been given three plants and are planted in 18x18 meter in this garden.
