Abu, the sacred mountain of the Jain sect (q.v.), is in Sirohi one of the Rajputana states, and has a height of some 6,000 feet. On the top stands a block of granite bearing the footprints of Vishnu, and half-way up are two magnificent marble temples, the finest specimens extant of Jain architecture. The place is used by Europeans as a sanatorium.
