Achalgarh Fort

Built in the 14th century by Rana Kumbha, Achalgarh Fort is around 8 km from Mount Abu. This beautiful fort has many Jain temples. The Achaleshwar Mahadeo temple in the fort is a well-known pilgrimage site where the foot prints of Lord Shiva are said to be embedded on a rock. Inside the temple, there is a big idol of Nandi. A sculpture of Parmar Dharavarsh, and Mandakini Tank with the image of Adi Pal (a Paramar king) and three large stone buffaloes pierced with an arrow are the major attractions.
