Mulnayak | Tirth | Historicity | Other Temples | Works of art and Sculpture | Guidelines | Trust | Photo Gallery

Mulnayak: Nearly 18 cms high, black-coloured foot-idols of Bhagawan Suvidhinath.
Tirth: It is in the Kakandi village.
Historicity: Four Kalyanakas (Events of a Tirthankara’s life which are beneficent to the world) namely chayvan, birth, diksa and attainment of omniscience of Suvidhinath took place on this holy land. Bhagawan Suvidhinath is also called Puspadanta. Since this is the holy land of Bhagawan Suvidhinath, the ninth Tithankara of the present group of 24 Tirthankaras, every atom and molecule of this temple is pious and adorable. Where are the words to describe this holy land? Even today these pudgala particles make the pilgrims engrossed in worship and lost in devotion. The worshippers gain religious merits and feel blessed.

Other Temples: Besides this, there are no other temples.

Works of art and Sculpture: The workmanship of the new and splendid, recently built temple is very constructive and splendid. The black-colored idol of Bhagawan Parshvanath in this temple is very ancient and artistic. It is just near the foot-idols.
Guidelines: Guidelines: The nearest railway station of Kyul is at a distance of 19 kilometers and Jamni is at a distance of 20 kilometers.. Bus service and private vehicles are available. The way to the temple is very narrow. Boarding and lodging provisions are nearby.
Trust: Shri Jain Svetambar Tirth Pedhi, Kakandi, Dist - Munger, State : Bihar, India.

Shri Mahavir Bhagwan
