Hub(s) : North Gujarat


Less than one km to the northwest of Taranga is a small hill with a steep slope that is difficult to climb. At the top of the hill there is a deep well, and a small Hanuman temple,with a kund. Among the various small shrines there is one with foot impressions of Chaumukhiji and Bhagwan Ajitnathji. Many Jain acharyas have attained moksha at this sacred place, so it is also called 'Siddhshila'.
