Taranga Hills

Located at a distance of 140 km from Ahmedabad, Taranga is a three peaked hill in the Mehsana District of Gujarat. Taranga is near the Jain temples of Idar and is considered as a Jain Siddha Kshetra. On this hill, there are 5 Digambar and 5 Shwetambar temples.

It is believed that numerous saints, after powerful austerities, have obtained final emancipation at this peak. In the 12th century, the Shwetambar Solanki king, Kumarapal, residing at Patan constructed a beautiful temple in the honor of Lord Ajitnath.

By road, it is accessible from Ahmedabad via Mehsana in North Gujarat. Taranga Hill Railway Station is around 7 km away.
