Abhaneri Tour Guide

Abhaneri is a pretty village about 95 kms from Jaipur on the Jaipur-Agra Road. It is well known for its Harshat Mata Temple. According to a myth, the village is so called because the Goddess Harshat Mata who is shown portrayed in a blissful mood is believed to spread brightness or "abha" all around. The village's novel name was Abha Nagri, and its name today is Abhaneri. It is said that the celebrated king Raja Chand established the village. The ruins of the temple also speak of the 10th century architectural and sculptural styles. There is a massive tank named "Chand Baori", opposite to the temple equipped on all four sides with bastions for defense. Even though Abhaneri is now in ruins, the place has a discrete reminiscence about itself. The Harshat Mata temple dates back to the tenth century AD and is placed under the guard of the Archeological Department of the Government of India. Daily worship is offered to the deity in the temple
