About Guru Dattatreya Temple
Located on the top of Girnar Hill, Guru Dattatreya temple in Junagadh is one of the foremost destinations of devotees of the Guru Dattatreya Sampradaya. It is believed Lord Dattatreya left home at an early age to seek enlightenment. He meditated on the top of Girnar Hill for 12000 years. A temple now stands at that place and it takes a climb of 10,000 steps to get there.
A Divine Trek
As you start climbing towards the top of the hill there are numerous Jain temples after about 4500 steps. A little further on comes the famous Ambaji Temple. Then comes the Guru Gorakhnath peak. After climbing down a little, comes Kamandal Kund. After that is the steepest climb and finally you arrive at Dattatreya temple and have a darshan of the imprints of Lord Dattatreya’s Lotus feet.
