Pilgrims on their way up to Gajpantha: a small group of caves and temples sanctified by Jaina saints who chose this lonely-now regrettably denuded – hill for dying a religious death. The hill is visible from the highway, but it needs a motor-rickshaw or a taxi to cover the about nine kilometres from Nasik.
There is, on the right of the highway, a Digambara temple with rooms for pilgrims.
The buses stop here.
A donorking or chieftain sitting on an elephant. Experts on historical Indian clothing should have little difficulty dating this panel of sculptures adorning a Gajpanthacave.
