Mount Abu is a quaint, rustic hill station in the state of Rajasthan. Nestled in the lap of the Aravalli mountain range, It has great history and mythology associated with it. The Aravalli mountain range is one of the oldest in the world, and Mount Abu has been home to a large number of ascetics in ancient times, who performed meditation in these peaceful regions.
Even in the present day, a large number of Ashrams belonging to various spiritual heads of the Hindu religion are located in Mount Abu. Prominent among them is Prajapita Brahmakumari Ishwareeya Vishwa-vidyalay. Pandav Bhawan is a building complex belonging to the organization of Brahmakumaris. Commonly called Madhuban, this place is where the founder- father of the organization, Prajapita Brahma spent his spiritual life.
