India: Pilgrims visiting the holy Jain Palitana temples (11th to 16th Century CE) in the Shatrunjaya Hills, Gujarat (2004) - The Jain's sacred site of Shatrunjaya contains hundreds of Palitana temples built mostly between the 11th Century and 16th Century CE. The Shatrunjaya Hills were sanctified when Rishabha, the first tirthankara (omniscient Teaching God) of Jainism, gave his first sermon in the temple on the hill top. The ancient history of the hills is also traced to Pundarika Swami, a chief Ganadhara and grandson of Rishabha, who attained salvation here. His shrine located opposite to the main Adinath temple, built by his son Bharata, is also worshiped by pilgrims.  ©Rainer Krack/Pictures From History/ The Image Works
