 Sammed Shikharji Tirth
Shree Sammed Shikhar or Shikarji (or Sammet Shikarji) is located 15 Kms away from Parasnath Railway Station on Delhi - Howrah Line. Regular local transport is available from station to Madhuban hills. Official transport services are also available from Digambar Jain Mandir.
Shree Sammed Shikhar is one of the most prominent pilgrimage among all the Jain pilgrimages located in eastern India. Pandit Dhyanatraiji has written in his ‘Pooja’ (Poem of worship) if one goes for adoration of Sammed Shikharji once in his life, he does not goin lives of animal and in the hell. Shree Sammed Shikhar is the topmost light of 'nirvana'.
 
From twenty-four Tirthankaras of Jainism , twenty Tirthankaras namely, Ajitnath, Sambhavnath, Abhinandan - prabhu, Sumatinath, Padmprabhu, Suparshwanath, Chandraprabha , Suvidhinath, Sheetalnath, Shreyansnath, Vimalanath , Anantanath, Dharmanath , Shantinath, Kunthunath, Aranath, Mallinath, Munisuvrat Swami , Neminath and Parshwanath spent the evening of their lives on this great mountain and attained the supreme status of 'moksha'. Sammed Shikhar is an astonishing, unique and awakened holy pilgrimage. This is the only the efficacy of Sammed Shikharji that from the ancient times so many Kings, Acharyas, Bhuttarakas and Shravakas came here with vast groups of devotees for pilgrimage with the purpose of self welfare and due to the devotion towards Teerthankaras and ascetic saints who attained salvation from here.
The ancient reference of Sammed Shikhar has been made in the scripture Jnatadharm Katha, the 'Parshwanath Charitra' (biography of Parshwanath) of Kalpsutra, and in the medieval literature 'Samidigiri' or 'Samadhigiri'. The local People address it as Parasnath Hill. It is also mentionable that this pilgrimage is called 'Sammet Shikhar' in the Swetambar tradition and 'Sammed Shikhar' in the Digambar tradition.
