Shri Bahubali Jain Mandir

Shri Jain Bala Vishram on the outskirts of Arrah is all institution for imparting education and culture to the girls. This institution is the gift of Smt. Nem Sundar Devi, widow of the late Shri Dhanendra Das Jain of Arrah. Within the compound of this higher standard institution, the donor has built a 15' high statue of Shri Bahubali Swami like the statue at Shravan Belgola in Mysore. The 57' high image of Bahubali Swami in Mysore has been copied at Venur and at Karkal in South India.

There was no replica anywhere in Northern India till this statue of 15' in height and 25 maunds in weight was installed. The Jains hailed the transport of this statue unscathed and its installation without any scratch with joy all over the country. The statue in the temple is over an artificial hillock and there are exquisite engravings of flowers, fruits and creepers round the temple. Although situated in girls’ institution, people are allowed freely to go in pay their homage.
