Located in the state of Bihar, Pawapuri has existed as a place of spirituality for many centuries, and remains one of the most sacred sites of Jainism. Pawapuri’s claim to fame lies in being the place where the twenty fourth Tinthankar Mahavir breathed his last, the event known in the Jaina tradition as Kaivalya which is considered to have taken place in 572 BC. According to a legend, the present tank in Pawapuri came into being as a result of removal of the soil following the great demand for Mahavir’s ashes after his cremation by his devotees. Today “Jalmandir”, a beautiful temple of white marble in the centre of the tank, is a magnet for devotees and tourists.
Sights to See
The focal point of any visit to Pawapuri is the Jalmandir, the pilgrimage destination of the Jaina religion. Located in the middle of a pool, Jalmandir is one of the holiest shrines in Jainism. It is the place where Mahavir was cremated. It is no wonder that the temple is a major pilgrimage destination for Jains from all over the world, as well as an increasingly popular tourist attraction. Pilgrims reach the Jalmandir by a 600 feet long stone bridge that juts out from the shore of the pool.
The well-known Jaina site of Samosharan is deservedly a tourist attraction in Pawapuri not to be missed. The place is home to a beautiful temple of white marble. It’s the place where Mahavira delivered his sermon after getting full enlightenment. Samosharan has long since been a place for religious pilgrimage.
