Mount Abu Summer Festival
  Mount Abu Summer Festival Organized in the only hill station of Rajasthan, this is the coldest place at this time of the year. Folk dances and a general atmosphere of gaiety prevails in this tiny hill resort and the tourist has ample time to relax and enjoy. The history of Mount Abu is as diverse as the city itself. It was once a part of the Chauhan kingdom of Rajasthan and served as a summer resort for the Rajput kings of the region. After that, it was leased by the British government from the then Maharaja of sirohi for use as the headquarter of the resident to Rajputana (another name for Rajasthan). During the British rule in India, it was the favorite summer destination of the British, who came here to escape the dusty, dry heat of the plains particularly Rajasthan. It also served as a sanatorium for the troops. The small huts and cottages here tell stories of those times even today. Mount Abu was the home of many saints and sages in the old days. Legend has it that all the 330 million gods and goddesses of the Hindu pantheon used to visit this holy mountain. It is also the place where the great saint Vashishth lived and performed a yagna (sacrificial worship on a fire pit) to create four Agnikula (four clans of fire) to protect the earth from demons. The yagna was supposed to have been performed near a natural spring, which emerged from a rock shaped like a cow's head. According to another legend, once sage Vashishth's cow Nandini was trapped in a deep gorge and could not free herself. The sage appealed to Lord Shiva for assistance. The Lord sent Saraswati, the divine stream, to help flood the gorge so that the cow could float up. Vashishth then decided to ensure that such mishaps did not occur in future. He asked the youngest son of Himalaya, the king of mountains to fill the chasm permanently. This he did with the assistance of Arbud, the mighty snake. This spot came to be known as Mount Arbud and was later changed to its present form - Mount Abu. This place is held in reverence by Jains as well since Jain scriptures record that Lord Mahavira, the 24th Jain Tirthankar (spiritual leader), also visited Mount Abu and blessed the city.

Paintings of sirohi
 Paintings of sirohi Till three decades ago sirohi paintings were considered to be a sub-school of Marwar. Exact provenance was not known. Around fifties, the buisness of antique, including the search for paintings had started. It so happened that a burnisher brought one complete set of Ragamala from Basantgarh. Other brunishers named Nawab & Jagirdar who were already involved in the buisness, brought this set first to Ramgopal Vijayvergiya, a very famous contemporary painter of Bengal tradition, who use to buy paintings in bulk and in fact started this buisness in Jaipur. The set could not be sold to Vijay vergiya due to price they asked for. Meanwhile they got the entire set copied by some local artist of Jaipur.

Wall Paintings
 Paintings of sirohi Normally wall paintings are considered inferior in quality and craftsmenship as compared to the paintings executed on paper. But if we compare sirohi mural with miniature paintings, we find that some of the wall paintings executed are maticulously executed well. It may lead us to believe that there must have been one class of painters who painted on walls and paper simultaneously.
