The only hill station of Rajasthan, its cool atmosphere and lush green surroundings make it a major tourist spot within the state. The most important attraction, however, are undoubtedly the Dilwara temples, which is one of the most stunning piece of architecture in the country. If you are a history or architecture buff, this is one of the places you should absolutely not miss out in India.
The exceptionally intricate architecture of the Dilwara temples are of course the main attraction here, and you can easily spend hours wondering how these temples were built over 2 centuries, almost a 1000 years back. The temples were specifically made so that they are plain from the outside to avoid attraction of plunderers, and have withstood the test of time extremely well. If architecture is not your thing, then there are various lakes and viewpoints such as the Honeymoon Point, Sunset Point, etc. Tourists enjoy calm and relaxed boating in the Nakki lake, and a view of the sunset from the Sunset point. The highest peak of the Aravali Range also lies in Mt. Abu, surrounded by dense green forests. Mt Abu will offer you all you can demand from a popular and typical destination of a romantic and simpler nature.

The only hill station in Rajasthan, Mount Abu acts as a relaxing point for people of both Rajasthan and Gujarat. Dilwara temple has an amazing architecture and is quite important for Jain pilgrims as well. Mount Abu can be visited throughout the year.
If you visit Mount Abu during winter season around Diwali the place gets very expensive. Also, it gets very crowded during the time from mid - May to mid - June and other peak seasons. Also, there's not much to do in the town except for a few sightseeing points.
The place is a hill station situated between beautiful evergreen mountains and has views to die for. The place is meant for honeymoon couples and families from Gujarat and Rajasthan. The place can be visited by anyone but as it is quite affordable. Mount Abu also attracts a lot of Jain pilgrims because of Jain temples.
