Harashat Mata Temple

The Harashat Mata temple is located at the Abhaneri, an ancient village in Rajasthan, famous for its post-Gupta and early medieval monuments. It is dedicated to the local Goddess Harashat Mata. The temple was constructed during the 10th century. It is in ruins now and the strewn pieces of sculpture display remarkable craftsmanship.

The goddess is portrayed in a joyous mood and is believed to spread brightness. An annual fair is held in honor of the goddess. Numerous devotees and merchants participate in the fair, which lasts for about three days.

Abhaneri is located on the Ahmedabad - Delhi railway line, near Bandikui in Jaipur district. It is about 95 km from Jaipur on the Agra road.
