Junagadh has been selected as one of the hundred Indian cities to be developed as a smart city under PM Narendra Modi's flagship Smart Cities Mission. The city is famous for its Junagadh Rock Cut Temple, also known as Girnar, which dates from the 5th century and is dedicated to Lord Shiva. It is an important pilgrimage site for both Shaivites and Vaishnavites. The main town in Junagadh district (the headquarters) lies at their foot of Mount Girnar on NH-8 between Ahmedabad and Veraval (bypass). The mountain itself rises about 1,200 feet above sea level with steep escarpments on all sides except north where it slopes gently towards the plains below; this side was chosen by early settlers who first built a fort there in 725 AD during Maitraka rule over Gujarat followed by another fort called "Killa" or "Nagara" ("city") around 940 AD during Solanki rule over Gujarat .
