Palitana, city of Jain temples, lies at the feet of Shatrunjaya hills, in the eastern part of the Saurashdtra. From this town, a flight of steps lead to a cluster of 863 temples built over a period of 900 years. 

 

These temples, dedicated to various Jain Saints and Deities.The architectural grandeur of these temples ,have few parallel  & it is an important place of pilgrimage on the Jain circuit.

On a moonlit night the ivory coloured temples built over a period sight. The ornate temples with deities studded with gems and jewels, can be reached after a 90minute climb on the Shetrunjaya Hills,.The journey is arduous. The walk up the stone stairway hewn into the mountain face takes about an hour and a half. For those unable or unaccustomed to the strain, sling-chairs are available at a bargain. 

The code for the climbers is stringent, in keeping with the rigours of the Jain faith. Food must neither be eaten nor carried on the way. The descent must begin before it is evening, for no soul can remain atop the sacred mountain during the night and Gods are to be left alone. Such is the mystique of Palitana, the summit of Shatrunjaya. Palitana has 2 trust run Jain museums. The Shri Vishal Jain Kala

The Shetrunji river flowing to its south adds to the beauty of the scenic landscape.
