Shri Ambika Niketan Mandir is situated at the banks of Tapti River. You can see also the Tapti River from the temple of Ambe Ji. During the Navratri, Ambe Ji Mandir is very crowded and a long queue to the darshan of Maa Ambika. Surat's local people come to Ambaji temple when they purchase new vehicles such as bike, scooty, car etc and want to get blessed with Maa Ambika blessing with him. Temple is neat & cleaned and well maintained.

Ambika Niketan Temple is two storey building. At the first floor, you can see the statue of Goddess Ambika and other Gods statue such as Lord Shiva, Laxmi Narayan etc.

Best Time to Visit Ambika Niketan Surat

Best time to visit Shri Ambika Niketan Mandir Surat is during the Navratri in October or November. You can also go there in February or March. During the rainy and summer season temple is less crowded. As per my opinion for any temple, the best time to go there is morning time. But you can go Ambika Niketan Mandir in the evening time also during 04:00 pm to 06:00 pm.

Ambika Niketan Temple Timing

Shri Ambika Niketan Temple opens daily in the morning at 6.00 am to 12.00 pm, and in the afternoon for 12.00 pm to 3.00pm closed and again opens at 3.00pm to 08:00 pm. So you can go there any day. During Hindu festivals, temple opening and closing timing little bit changed as per requirement.

TouristBug’s Recommendations 
  • On Sunday the temple is crowded so if you don't like the crowd you can avoid going on Sunday.
  • At Shri Ambika Niketan Mandir parking facility is there but the capacity is low. So during any Hindu festival or Navratri parking of two or four wheelers is difficult in the temple parking area.
  • You can also visit the Shree Swaminarayan Gurukul in Surat. It is also a nice place to visit once if you are in Surat.
