Jharkhand Jain Pilgrimages - Parasnath, Sikayi Hill and Madhuban

Send this page to a friend

Meenal Shah took her parents from Bombay to visit the holy temple at Parasnath; they had planned this pilgrimage for a long time. They flew to Ranchi and from there took a taxi on to the place of pilgrimage.






Situated on top of the highest peak in Jharkhand, Sikayi Hill, is the famous Jain temple dedicated to the 23rd tirthankara, Parsvanatha. It is an extremely holy pilgrimage spot for the Jains, as it is believed the great sage attained nirvana here. Devout pilgrims climb the peak by foot, from the starting point at Madhuban, and the entire walk up takes around three hours. The surrounding panoramas from the top of the peak are beautiful. Parasnath is in Giridih District, 179km from Ranchi.
