The main annual event for Hindus is the Maha Shivaratri fair held every year on 11th day of Hindu calendar month of Kartik. At least 10 lakh pilgrims visit the fair to participate in pooja and parikrama of Girnar hill. The procession begins at ancient Bhavnath Mahadev Temple at Bhavnath. It then proceeds onwards to various akharas of various sects of sadhus, which are in Girnar hill from ancient times.All temples of Girnar are sacred to pilgrims of both Hindu and Jain faith. In fact, Girnar has been a sacred place well before the Dholavira and Mohenjodaro period and its origin can be traced back to the Vedas and other holy scriptures of various Indus Valley based religions.
