Great place. Lot of Ashrams at the base of the mountain. Some say this mountain is even older than the Himalaya. It is quiet and with lot of options to eat. The locations to stay around this place are not great, but most of the travellers just stay one night before/after the climb.

Giranrji is amongst the highest mountain peaks to pray for Jains and further up to the Shiv mandir. The intricate architectural detail provide for a visual setting with the smoky white clouds serving as a perfect backdrop. Must visit place in Junagadh.

Girnarji is a group of Jain temples established at the 3300th step mark from the base (girnar taleti) that lies off the city of Junagadh in southern gujarat. The climb is stiff, typically one starts before sunrise - about five am is adequate though you could start much earlier as the entire path is lit and there are steps and... More

Any trip to Junagad or Sasan Gir is incomplete without a visit to Girnar Hills Temple. There are Jain Temples, Amba Mata Temple, Dattatraya Temple and Gorakhnath Temple. So one can imagine the how divine the Mountain would be. When one starts climbing at 4000 steps there is Neminath Temple, at 6000 steps one would find Amba Mata Temple, at... More

The climb took us about 2.5 hours on foot. Tiring a bit, but verrry satisfying. the coolness of the air as you move up was something that made the climb worth all the pain. From the first tonk, we went to the other temple, which is a bit off the main route, about 1200 steps down. From there you can... More

Takes about 5-6 hours to climb (may be less if you start earlier), and about 2-3 hours to get down. Make sure you have a lot of fluids along the way. There are shops every 300m or so, so you can keep buying drinks or water.

On the second tonk, about 1500 steps from first tonk, there is temple of Maa Ambe. Also, there are several other temples and charan paduka at the various... More

Girnar Climb is quite a difficult climb. It's all Narrow High stairs which makes it more difficult. But once you start reaching the temples, You get that vibe of divinity and spirituality within. It's amazing. Especially for Jains and Hindus, The place might feel surreal because they will be able to connect with the Mythology. It's a historic gem to... More

Started the climb at 0530 hrs & was at the peak by 0830 hrs, with a few breaks en route to capture the awesome scene on the... More

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. This is considered to be Neminath mountain or fifth peak of the Shatrunjay mountain. In this tirtha Shri Neminath Bhagavan is worshipped. The idol is in black granite... More
