Nearly 45 cms
high, white-colored idol of Bhagawan Vasupujya Swami in Padmasana posture.
It is near the Bhagalpur railway station and on the bank of the Ganga
This is the only tirth where all the five Kalyanakas - Chyavan, birth,
diksa, attainment of omniscience and attainment of Moksa - of Bhagawan
took place. At time in the past, this was a large city. Bhagawan Adishvar,
Bhagawan Parshvanath and Bhagawan Mahavir Swami put their feet on this
land. Mahavir had his third and twelfth monsoon sojourns in this city. It
was a very prosperous and happy city. It was the capital of karna, the
donor of Dadhivahan of karagadu and of Ajatashatru, the son of the Shrenik,.
Many brave Jain Kings, groups of Sadhus and rich merchants lived here. The
religious activities that they did on this holy land will be noted in
letters of gold. On the day of Nirvana of Bhagawan, the fourteenth day of
the bright half of the month of Asadh, sweet balls are offered to God.
Lost in the worship of Bhagawan, thousands of devotees, spread the message
of the Jan religion.
Many idols are installed in this temple in memory of Kalyanakas of
Bhagawan. Besides there are Digambar Jain temples of the hills of
Bhangalpur, Mandargiri and Nathnagar.
of art and Sculpture:
Though the city is very ancient, no ancientness is seen in the temples. It
is believed that in the course of its frequent renovations, the specimens
of artistry and ancientness were perhaps exchanged. In the upper part of
the temple, the incidents of the life of Shripal and Mayana are
beautifully painted. Many idols of all the five Kalyanakas of Bhagawan are
installed in the temples and they are very spectacular.
The nearest railway station of Bhangalpur is at a distance of 6 kilometrs
from the tirth. Bus service and private vehicles are available. On the
open ground of the temple, there are Boarding and lodging provisions.
