The Heritage

In the serene hills of Shatrunjaya resides a treasure of true happiness. Its foothills have imprints of Jainism’s most admired Pratham TirthankarBhagwan Shri Rushabh Dev Swami. This is titled Shatrunjay as Shashvattirth of Palitana and it has been marked globally as holiest pilgrim place for Jain devotees.

Every year a majority of Jain followers visit divine Jain temples at Palitana, Gujarat with immense hope and pure soul.

A Jain Shravak, Late Shri Kundanmalji Tarachandji & his family were blessed to raise the Vidhya Vihar Temple & Dharamshala with their comprehensive knowledge of Jain religion and devotional practices for Jain culture. As a family together, they had envisaged a dream of building a temple and with blessings of Charam Tirthpati, the twenty-fourth Tirthankar of Jains, Bhagwan Shree Mahavir Swami, idolizing Gurus & also with Kundanmalji’s parents grace they made this dream come true.
