Jalamandir

Pawapuri in Patna district is the place where Mahavir Swami the 24th and last Tirthankara had his samadhi. It has an exquisite temple built inside a tank, which has a captivating mass of lotus flowers. The late Shri. Abhoy Kumar Jain of Arrah conceived the idea of reproducing the Pawapuri temple in Arrah and he translated his dream into a vivid reality. This Jalamandir is a miniature Pawapuri temple. There is 40’ long bridge with a width of 4’ for reaching the temple within the tank. The temple has a fine image of Mahavir Swami and the surroundings ar furnished by a well-kept garden. Both the sculptor and the architect have displayed their remarkable talents in the erection of this Jalamandir.
