The Girnar hills is a famous pilgrimage spot of the temple of Guru Dattatreya who is considered to be the human manifestation of the Hindu trinity of Gods, Bramha Vishnu & Maheshwara. This temple is the landmark for the peak Guru Shikhar on the Girnar hill and is surrounded on all sides by thick vegetation and wildlife.
The Guru Dattatreya temple is located atop a hill which is an 10,000 step stair travel for the pilgrims from the Girnar hill below. The climb to the summit to visit Dattatreya temple is very challenging and quite steep and truly tests the sincerity and devotion of the aspiring pilgrim or believer. The Dattatreya temple is a sanctum of faith for many mendicants, hermits and people of religious belief and they can be seen flocking around its premises or conducting rituals. The shrine of Dattatreya is indeed very ancient and is a feeble reminder of the presence of this divine being in human form as it lies in utter neglect and tatters.
