A small town located in the Bhavnagar district of Gujarat, Palitana is noted as a popular pilgrimage site among the Jains. Another famous thing about Palitana is that the town strictly follows vegetarianism which makes it the first city in the world to abide by the vegetarian diet legally. It is no surprise that the town has listed selling of animal products (Fish, meat and eggs) or activities that involve the killing of animals to be illegal.
Visitors can enter the temples without paying any entrance fees. However, there is also a facility of Palki for older people who can’t climb the 3950 steps stretched across a distance of approximately 4 km. This facility has specific charges attached to it. Commonly referred to as Doli, (a carriage or sling-chair), if you are willing to go in a Doli without chairs, it costs around INR 2500 for two people, and if you are looking for a Doli with Chairs, the cost comes around INR 5000 for four people. During the peak season, the rates might often go up, however, in the offseason, it might be slashed to half of the mentioned cost.
