Except for the journey we took to reach the top of the hill that is guru shiker everything was worst especially the gujrati people who are very rude,mean and especially scammers.They do not treat people from out of state who are non gujrati speakers well,they treat us as if we are beggars.when in morning I got poha for breakfast their was makkhi in it.I was supposed to take receipt for the Bamboo sticks and wasn't informed about it and when I came to return the sticks back they refused the give me deposit amount since I did not have receipt.

It is necessary to climb 3800 steps to reach the jain temples of Girnar. Even if these temples do not have the splendor of those of Palitana, it is a very nice excursion. Girnar Hill is a jain hill, but the Hindu supremacists colonized it, dotting the staircase with chapels populated by armed monsters covered with cut flowers, things that the non-violent jains hate, which causes tensions between the two communities.
It is forbidden to photograph inside the jain enclosure and almost impossible to find photos on the internet, hence the poor quality of the old representations of curious high-reliefs adorning the interior of the domes of the main temple,

Trip to Girnar was nostalgic as I had visited it a lot during my childhood days. Earlier we had to climb 10000 steps but now with Udankhatola, the climb to Lord Dattatrey temple is around 5000 steps.
I am sure you'll never forget the experience of Ropeway. Reaching to temple of Lord seems to be a big challenge as you have to ascend and descend so many steps.
But finally the FAITH prevails, and you feel blessed when you're in the sanctorum.

we have 3 beautiful temples located on top of the hill.

1. Jain Temple
2. Ambaji Temple--Symbol of power.
3. Dattatreya temple

During Shivarathri ,Sadhus from across the country will be visiting this place for Kumbha mela.

People from different locations across the country will be here during shivarathri .

Gujrat Govt will be making necessary arrangements to safe guard this place and entire police force, officials will be here till its completion of kumbha mela

Guru Dattatrey Bhagwan has been here for a long time for meditation.

If you coming by train get down at Junagadh Station and catch a bus/Auto from there to reach the Girnar.
We have lodges, in Dharmashala near the mountain but during peak time try to make your stay plan at Junagadh itself.

From there we have ropeway till Ambaji temple i.e at 5000 steps and from there we need to go by walk to reach Dattatreya temple.

Temple is located on Girnar mountain at 3295 ft above sea level and at 9999 steps . We need to cross 3 Hills to reach this temple

It's very crowded on Shivarathri and During peak time, we have a separate route to come down which is laid around the mountain and total steps will be around 25000 including ascending and descending

We have a Ropeway facility till Ambaji temple only after that next 5000 steps need to go by walk to reach Dattatreya temple.

During Shivarathri or peak time, we need to stand in long queues to get our turn for the ropeway.

Food stalls, water, and other refreshment are available throughout the journey.

People are friendly over here and the Gujrat police force will be safeguarding this place.

It was an excellent experience climbing the hills. it's Worth a visiting once in life.

During normal days, the Dattatreya temple closes at 12 midnight and opens in the morning at 5:30 am.

During Normal days, on average a person can take around 6 to 7 hrs to climb 10000 steps, and during Peak hours or festival time it takes 12-15 hours to finish 25000 steps ascending and descending

On normal days the shops along the climbing path are generally closed by 9:00 pm and again start opening by 2 or 3 am at the night.

On Poornima days the temple is open throughout the night so no problem. It's an adventurous trip and experiences the mesmerizing atmosphere

We have network issues over here so plan accordingly.

Try to climb the mountain early in the morning or during winter.
