About Jain Teerth
India is a land of spirituality
where great persons were born to sing immortal songs. The places stamped by
their holy feet became famous as sacred places. Idols of Tirthankara-
Parmatmas, promoters of Jainisim (Jain Shwetambar), were installed there (like Shikharji Jain temple). India has a large
number of such sacred places. They are powerful means of crossing the
samsara. They provide an opportunity to cure the disease of transmigration.
Jain Holy Places
Sacred places are silent but they tell immortal stories of holy selfs of
Tirthankaras and other saintly beings. Picture writings and various kinds
of idols convey the message of Tirthankaras. The name of sacred places tells
glorious stories of its past history, its architecture, its culture,its
prosperity and the mind of the masses. Jain Pilgrims who visit sacred places or come on the Jain tirth yatra are considered lucky as they get the chance to seek the blessings of their Tirthankaras.
