Hi,

I'm traveling to Gujarat in the next two weeks and I plan on staying one night in Palitana, to visit the temples and as a good halfway point between Velavadar and Junagadh. However, I've been stumped on hotels online. The only one I've managed to contact is the Vijay Vilas Palace, and it's just way too expensive, it costs more than the five star I'm staying in in Mumbai for a friends wedding. Can anyone provide some options? Especially those suitable for Americans who have never been to India before.

Thanks!

Tough ask. We were at Palitana in Dec 14 and though it's a bustling town, most of the accommodation is of ''dharmshalas'' (pilgrim houses, if you will). Quite a few of them (at-least 4 that i counted) were very clean. The problem is, I do not know if they'd allow a non-jain, leave alone a non-Indian. There was at least one foreigner in the several hundred of devotees who went up (Junagadh had more), so he must have found accommodation. Try kasturdham (they have a site and a booking office in the UK. Perhaps email them?

p.s. Just so you know, photography is no longer permitted inside the temple complex, if it makes a difference. From across a ridge, overlooking the temples, it's OK to photograph.

There seems to be a Gujarat Tourism hotel in Palitana (Hotel Sumeru).

Are these type of hotels good? I'm completely unfamiliar with government tourist board run hotels, we don't have them in the USA.
