Palitana Pilgrimage and Heritage Experience
The Palitana temples are considered the most sacred Jain pilgrimage center (60 kms from Bhavnagar and 230 kms from Ahmedabad). There are more than 1300 temples here located on a hill, exquisitely carved in marble. These temples are built by generations of Jains over a period of 900 years from 11th century onwards. The main temple on top of the hill, is dedicated to 1st tirthankar lord Adinath (Rishabdeva). There are incredibly more than 27000 idols in the complex.
The Palitana temple complex is one to visit for everyone (Including non Jain and Overseas nationals) at least once for a visit that’s nothing short of an experience. It takes a full day at least to climb up the hill and visit all temples.
Recommended stay – 1 night Season – Throughout (Winter is better as its not as hot as it is in Summer)
