"Shatrunjaya Hill" Palitana by Canadienne

Palitana Travel Guide: 12 reviews and 14 photos

The town of Palitana appears to exist solely for the pilgrims of Shatrunjaya Hill. Palitana itself is a main street of guest houses and vegetarian restaurants (catering to the Jain palate).

Atop Shatrunjaya Hill, one of the holiest sites of the Jain religion, visitors are rewarded with 863 temples within a walled complex. It's a long, hot walk to the top. . .but well worth the trip.

    Such memories you brought back (I was there in 1996). Is the temple at the base of the hill new - I don't remember it. Wonderful pictures & text.
