77 beautiful, white colored Jain temples are located on the hill. Beautiful temples on both sides of the way make the walk worthy of every step. One has to remove the shoes, so be careful if you are coming in summer months as you have walk to the temples on hot marble stones.

There are dozens of temples, mostly white. Some are really beautiful and decorated, but the main attraction is their collective beauty on the hillside. On our visit all the individual temples were actually closed ,but it did not distract from the beauty of the place. The whole site is sacred so the strict restrictions of a jain temple apply from...

Temples all around the hill. Most of the temples are white giving a beautiful scene to the area. Roads are very bad though.
