Māra’s Chambers is a cave system on the outcrop of the sandstone on the right bank of the Abava valley. They are located in the very heart of Kurzeme between Sabile and Renda. Overall there seven niches or caves that have originated naturally by water eroding the sandstone. Nowadays the caves are dry and have a height of half a meter to two and a half meters. The width and depth are about a meter. Since the middle of the last century, a number of different stories have been told about the origin of Mara's chambers. One of them claims that there had been a castle on the hill of Mara’s chambers, where maids called Maras lived, but the castle had sunk and only the ravine stayed. Later it had been stroken by the thunder, whereas Mara's chambers arised from.
There is also a nice viewing platform with benches on the way to caves to observe the magnificent landscape of Abava valley.
