The Girnar Mountain is in
Junagadh and is 327 kms from
Girnar is one of the two hills most sacred to the Jain community of India.
It rises to a height of more than 600 meters, a climb marked by 10,000
stone-steps, built and maintained from the proceeds of a lottery. Five
peaks, crowned by sixteen carved and sculptured marble shrines adorn this
famous hilltop temple city.
Five of the temples of Girnar are Jain temples including the largest and the oldest - the 12th century Temple of Neminath, the 22nd Jain Tirthankar. In the central shrine, there is a large black image of Neminath with several other smaller images.
While descending one can visit the Bhavnath temple dedicated to Lord Shiva.
Mahashivratri at Bhavnath is a major event every year, when a fair is held here for five days.
