The beautiful Jain temples situated across the state of Gujarat have been attracting one and all since many years. The sheer number of temples located are one of the reasons why many people rue the inability to see all of them. Planning for such a tour is an taxing exercise, one which not many are able to do. However, with the Jain pilgrimage package offered by Indian Temple tours, you can not only cover all the places but enjoy all the sights that behold these spiritual marvels.Starting from Rajkot, we go on to Junagadh to marvel at the jain temples situated there. The next morning begins with the mission to cover the 900 temples situated Girnarji Taleti. The trip then reaches Palitana where you can behold the Shri Digambar Jain Siddha Kshetra Shatrunjaya Giri and the Hindu temple of Khodiyar Mata. From there, you return to Ahmedabad and that’s where the second leg starts Patan and Palanpur. From there, we move on to Ambaji temples which is one of the 51 Shakti peethas located in Mount Abu and then move on to Udaipur. From here we visit Ranakpur Ji, one of the holiest Jain shrines and then to Nakodaji and finally cap off the tour at Jodhpur to complete a fulfilling journey not just for your body but also your soul.
