It was one of the best trips to such a lovely temple in India. The walk is steep but it's worth going up for the prayer! For elderly folks they have the rides that is apt as well.

Climbing the 3000 steps is a very easy task if you believe in God. The temple is heaven for Jains and tourists and is always filled with serenity.

This is the first temple you come across as you start your climb up the Shatrunjaya hills temple complex. Gets very crowded and the commercial activities at the base of the temple complex takes away the charm of visiting Jain temple complexes. The swaminaryaran temples are more serene.

One of the most pilgrimage places for Jains is Palitana. An uphill climb which can be a stress test but the faith always takes you to the top. For those who can not climb the Palkhi's are available. One can can do Darshan Pooja. The Jains do not consume food and some even don't drink water while climbing up although... More
