  • Taranga Jain Temple: Taranga is a Jain pilgrimage site in Gujarat's Mehsana district. It is one of the few tirthas frequented by both the Shvetambaras and the Digambaras. The first temple was built in 1121 by Solanki king Kumarpal with the help of his tutor Acharya Hemachandra. The primary idol is a 2.75 m marble figure of Rishabha. The Shvetambara complex is made up of 14 temples in all. Taranga also has five Digambara-affiliated temples. Digambaras originally settled on this lonely mountaintop with three granite summits. Taranaga is regarded a siddha kshetra in Jainism. It is reported that 35,000,000 monastics obtained moksa here, including the Ganadharas Vardutta and Sagardutta. The Tirthankaras Neminath and Mallinath of Vikram 1292 have idols on the two hillocks named Kotishila and Siddhashila. There are 14 Digambara temples in the foothills, as well as a Digambara dharamshala. A "Tonk," a modest shrine built by Digambaras, is on the highest summit of the three-peaked hill; it houses a marble figure of the nineteenth Tirthankara, Mallinath.

  • Chamunda Mata Temple: Chamunda Mata Temple is situated on the shores of a large lake near Vartol. Bhimnath Mahadev Temple, with its massive Shivlinga, was built within the vast temple complex of Chamunda Ma Mandir. Because the temple is located near a lake and has a natural setting with a spiritual aura, many devotees and tourists visit here, and it is also popular as a one-day picnic place. Aside from that, spiritual and social functions are planned throughout the year. It is also believed that Goddess Chamunda grants the wishes of devotees wanting children; hence many people from all across Gujarat come here after their requests are granted.
