About Gaumukh Temple

Gaumukh Temple is a beautiful, and famous temple in Mount Abu. It is dedicated to Saint Vashish, who is believed to have lived here with his wife and perform yagnas.

The temple is called Gaumukh meaning Cow's head. In Hindu religion, a cow is considered sacred and near the temple one can find a spring that is believed to have emerged from the mouth of rock that is similar to a cow's head. The place houses a large marble statue of a cow representing the Shiva's vehicle Nandi along with statues of Nandi, Saint Vashishth, Lord Ram and Lord Krishna. There is also a stream that flows from the mouth of the marble bull. This place is nestled in between the thick Aravalli forest and beautiful mountain range. Many tourists visit Gaumukh to enjoy the beauty and nature of this location. One can enjoy walking excursions, picnics or just the view of the gorgeous temple and statues. Many people visit Gaumukh for meditation as well.
