Long Description

Mountain in the north-eastern Indian state of Jharkhand, which is also known as Sammeta Śikhara and Pārasnātha Hill. Twenty Jinas and many other Jain saints attained liberation there, and it is the site of auspicious events – kalyāṇakas – connected with many Jinas. It is thus one of the holiest places for Jains, with numerous temples attracting thousands of pilgrims each year.
