In the holy temple of "Arasuri Ambaji", there is no statue of goddess the holy "Shree Visa Yantra" is worshiped as the main deity. No one can see the Yantra with naked eye and hence the photography of the Yantra is also prohibited.
The original seat of Ambaji mata is on gabbar hilltop near the Ambaji town. A large number of devotees visit the temple every year specially on Purnima (Full Moon) days. A large mela on Bhadrapad Poornima is held. Every Year from all over the country people come here walking all over from their native place just to worship MAA AMBA. The whole Ambaji is lighted up as the whole nation lights up at the festive time of Dipawali.

Ambaji, the Origin of the Supreme Cosmic Power of the Universe is one of the fifty one 51 ancient Shakti Piths Tirth in India. There are 12 main Shakti Pith Tirth, significant places of pilgrimage for the worship of Shakti, namely, Ma Bhagwati Mahakali Maha Shakti at Ujjan, Ma Kamakshi at Kanchi Puram, Mata Bramaramba at Malay Giri, Shri Kumarika at Kanya Kumari, Mataji Ambaji at Anartgujarat Mata Mahalaxmidevi at Kohlapur, Devi Lalita at prayag, Vindhya Vasini at Vindhya, Vishalakshi at Varansi, Mangalavati at Gaya and Sundari Bhavani at Bangal & Guhya Kesari in Nepal. The Great Miracle of this Holy Place is that there is no picture in the Mandir the Temple of Shri Arasuri Mata Ambaji, but a simple cave in the inner wall, in which A Gold Plated Holy Shakti Visa Shree Yantra having kurma back convex shape and 51 Bij letters therein, connected with that of the original Yantras of Nepal and Ujjain Shakti Piths, is also ritually installed in such a way it can be visible for devotion, but never photographed in past nor can be so done in future. The worship of this Visa Shree Yantra is done only after tying a bandage on the eyes.

According to the Indian Scriptures Gabbar Tirth, situated on the bank of the origin of the Vedic virgin river SARASWATI, in the hills of Arasur in Ambica forest, towards south-west side to old hills of Arvalli is one of the Fifty One (51) famous Ancient Pauranik Shakti Piths in India.
In Accordance with the legend in Devi Bhagvat, Mahisasur was a dangerous demon to the whole universe, therefore all the Gods under the leadership of Tridev Bhrahma (Lord of Creation), Vishnu (Lord of Maintenance) & Mahesh (Lord of Destruction) ultimately went to the final recourse to the Mahadevi Adhya Shakti, the Supreme Original Cosmic Power of The Universe and worshiped her for rescue and help. And then Adhya Devi Shakti incarnated on earth with weapons surrounded by a bright circle of sunny rays, so as The Atomic Energy emerges from its origin and Devi killed and absolved the demon Mahishasur by her holy sword and since then she became known in the world as "Mahisasur Mardini".

Gabbar in Ramayan
As per a legend said in Ramayan, Lord Rama and Laxman came to Ashram of Shrungi Rushi in search of Sitaji, where they were told to worship Devi Ambaji at Gabbar. And Rama did so and Jagat Mata Shakti (The Mother of Energy of the whole Universe) Devi Ambaji gave him an miraculous arrow namely "Ajay", with the help of which Rama conquered and killed his enemy Ravan in the war.
