Center of the Jain Religion

Palitana is a pretty cool town! It is the center of the Jain Religion. They are very strict vegetarians and also do not want to hurt any living creature. They even wear face masks so not to inhale a bug! I don't really know enough about it to give much information. I walked up the mountain on a Pilgrimage with a guy that spoke very good English. The top of the mountain is covered by 100's of temples! And the view from the top is Awesome also!

    I can symphathize with you! Getting bit by mosquitos is one thing - catching Malaria is something else! Still don't know how I avoided it in all these trips - no pills for me!

    Not inhaling bugs seems to be a good idea regardless of how you feel about harming bugs. I had to sleep in mosquito nets when I was a kid. Those buggers are good at finding openings. You must have been quite a feast :)
