History

Mount Girnar is a gigantic five peaked rock formation of volcanic origin, the tallest of these rises to 945 meters (3600 feet) above sea level. The five peaks of Girnar are topped by 866 intricately carved stone temples. There are around 8,000 steps from the trailhead to the highest peak. The five peaks, crowned by sixteen beautifully carved and sculptured marble shrines on the western flank of the mountain forms one of the most beautifully situated group of Jain temples in India. It is a sacred place for Jains, Hindus and also for Muslims.; Mt. Girnar is also unique in that both the Digambar and Shwetambar have temples on its hills.

Girnar is a holy place and an important pilgrimage for both Hindus and Jains since the 3rd century. Girnar temples present a true blend of art, religion and devotion. The Jain temples at Girnar attract devotees of both Shwetambar and Digambar sects of Jainism. The two important Jain temples here are the Mallinath and Neminath.
