The city’s name, derived from the Goddess Ambika, she has her temple right in the middle of this city. The neighbouring terrain of this city is covered with forests and if you are looking for a holiday, you are looking to head to Mainpat, a charming little hill station in the Surguja district. Due to itsbeautiful location and its abundant flora and fauna this is a very popular tourist destination.
