JAIN PILGRIMAGE

PARASNATH

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.
