    Today grace of God Aadinath Tirthankar Alpesh Shah have completed Shatrunjay hill tirth yatra on foot with my daughters by steplling total more than 7000 steps (3500 steps on one side). It is impossible for me to complete this yatra without any support but god Aadinath bhagwan and others tirthankaras gift have successfully completed yatra and seva puja also done. The shatrunjay hill is considered sacred by Shvetambara Jains. It is said that 23 of 24 Jain Tirthankaras, except Neminatha, sanctified the hill by their visits. There are approximately 863 marble-carved temples on the hills spread mostly in nine clusters, some being vast temple complexes, while most small in size. The main temple is dedicated to Rishabhanatha, the first Tirthankara; it is the holiest shrine for the Svetambara Murtipujaka sect. The main temple is reached by stepping up 3500 steps. Along with Shikharji in the state of Jharkhand, the two sites are considered the holiest of all pilgrimage places by the Jain community.Jains believe that a visit to this group of temples is essential as a once-in-a-lifetime chance to achieve nirvana or
