If you are searching for mountains, Small trails for Trekking, Old architecture and religion place than this is perfect one.

Day 1

Taranga Hill - A combination of Nature and marvelous carving,architecture of beautiful jain temple surrounded by small hills. The temple is surrounded by total three peaked hill. You can climb all three hills and it will take around one hours per hill.

We started by early morning. Love the sunrise from the top of the hill and peaceful surrounding the place. There are more than 7 temples (Digambar jain & Shvetambar jain temple) are situated on hill and also Jain lord footprint on hill.

Photography is not allowed inside the Shwetamber jain temple. But the temple itself is marvelous piece of architecture from 12th century. The carving in wall, pillars and inside the temples are amazing. Also the main idol of Lord Ajitnath is very huge and attractive.

How to reach Taranga hill:

We went over here by our personal car. Though you can hire taxi from railway station of ahmedabad or airport. It is nearly 125km. You can stay in Ahmadabad city only and visit the site and come back or another option is stay in Mehsana city (60km away). On the way there are lots of highway hotel for food facility. But we were taken our lunch at Jain swetamber Bhojanshala only. The food are delicious.

If you get time than visit the Jogiwada caves/Buddhist caves. It’s situated on the other side of hill and please consult local people for further details.

What you need not to miss:

The Jain Temple(main temple) made from yellow sandstone is very nice and peaceful.

Lord Ajitnath idol made from one single marble.

Hiking to all three mountains (Siddhshila, Kotishila and Mokshbari).
