SHAHABAD

There is also a sprinkling of Jains in Buxar, Sasaram and other places. They are mostly business people. The Jains of Arrah have been remarkably religious- minded and liberal and through their efforts there are now 44 Jain temples in Arrah and its suburb and one in Dalmianagar. This number is really very large for an average district headquarters town.

Its temples have made Arrah a place of pilgrimage for the Jains and every year thousands of Jain pilgrims visit Arrah. There are two large well-appointed Jain dharmashalas -for the Jain pilgrims.The temple authorities are all remarkable for their active spirit of dedication and service. A number of these Jain temples are located in private houses and the doors of these private houses are always thrown open to the religious-minded people without any restriction.

Some of the modern Jain temples in Arrah town deserve much more attention than a passing reference. These temples are mostly replicas of other Jain temples elsewhere and poems in marble have been reproduced an enormous cost to the donors. They attract not only thousands of Jain pilgrims throughout the year but are also visited by men following other creeds and all are creations of the fertile imagination of the architects.
