    Shikhar Shilanyas

    We were at the pinnacle of the new Mandir construction on Shikhar Shilanyas day after 28 months of Khanan Vidhi. We were ecstatic as we had our Dream Mandir standing in front of us. Now, we knew that the Vedi Shilanyas and Panch kalyanak Pratishtha Mahotsav were just round the corner. The Shikhar Shilanyas Vidhi was undertaken by our respected Br. Sh. Hemantbhai Gandhi. In this Vidhi, the foundation stone was laid of the Grandeur Marble Shikhar (Pinnacle) of the newly constructed Sh. Simandharswami Digamber Jin Mandir. Shikhar is epitome of purity which Shree Vitragi Dev-Shastra-Guru represents and taught to us by our venerable Gurudevshree and Mataji. It was a Vidhi wherein every mumukshu had to go 40 feet above the ground level and put their brick marking their contribution to the making of the new Shikhar Bandhi temple. All the overjoyed Mumukshu’s from Mandir participated in this event.

    Vedi Pratishtha of Sh. Bahubali Munidra Bhagwan

    Khadgaasan Bahubali Munindra Bhagwan is a symbolic deity for any Digamber Jin Mandir. We were blessed in 2009 with sacred arrival of Sh. Bahubali Munindra Bhagwan.
