On my recent visit to conduct a workshop at Aurangabad, I visited a Jain temple on the way to Shahpur near Nasik, Maharashtra. The temple is popularly known as Manas Mandir and stands atop a hill. It is considered to be a replica of famous temple complex of Palitana, which is a great pilgrimage site for Jainas. While entering the huge temple complex, I could see many different temple spires and found out that it had been built a few years ago by a very famous Jaina monk, Shri Bhuvan Bhanu Vijayji with help from his disciples.
Surrounded by many small temples, each devoted to Jaina Sutra, I walked towards the main temple which appeared very big. The main idol here is that of the first Tirthankar Rishabhdev (also known as Adinath). Apart from his idol there are those of many other Tirthankaras in the sanctum sanctorum.
