Shatrunjaya are hills located by the city of Palitana, in Bhavnagar district, Gujarat, India. The Jain's sacred site of Shatrunjaya contains hundreds of Palitana temples. The hills were sanctified when Rishabha, the first tirthankara of Jainism, gave his first sermon in the temple on the hill top. Shatrunjaya was also known as Pundarikgiri as Pundarik was said to have attained nirvana on this mountain. The hills were considered a thirtha (religious divine place) even before AD. The Palitana temples, a pilgrimage complex on both hills and their saddle, are reached by climbing approximately 3750 stone steps, which are carved into the mountain. During this yatra, which is considered a great event in the lifetime of a Jain, pilgrims circumambulate the Shatrunjaya hills covering a distance of 216 kilometres on foot, offering prayers.
