Within the grounds of the Mandir but outside of the Mandir itself we have installed a manastambh replete with pratishtith bhagwans. A manastambh is a tall column sometimes referred to as a Column of Dignity, it is something that can be seen from a long distance away and thus can mark the presence of a Jain mandir nearby. Our manastambh has been made in the same style as the manastambh in Songadh, Saurashtra. Literally translated, a manastambh is a barrier not traversable by humans.
On the right we can see the top of the manstambh with four pratimas installed each looking out so all four directions are covered. Above we see a bhagwan installed near the base of the manstambh, again there are four looking out in all directions. Prakshalan of these eight pratishtith bhagwans is carried out daily whilst abhishek is reserved for special occasions for reasons of praticality.
To see the manstambh in all its glory and to see the beautiful vedi for our mulnayak Bhagwan Mahavir, please visit the mandir. The mandir address and details of how to get there can be found in the Info section.
