Arbudaanchal is the ancient name for Mount Abu. The region was called Arbudaranya (“forest Arbuda“) in the Puranas. ‘Abu’, a diminutive, is also a reference to this ancient name. After he had a dispute with sage Vishvamitra, it is believed that Vashistha moved to Mount Abu’s southern spur. Another historical tale claims that a serpent called “Arbuda”, saved Nandi’s life (Lord Shiva’s bull). This happened on Mount Abu, and the mountain was named after it. Abu gradually evolved into Arbudaranya.
