Shri Digambar Jain Chandranatha Swami Mandir,Dharmasthal


Dharmasthala, the name signifies a place of religion. Primarily a Jain Heritage center, with time many religions have made this place home. Here we can see a very old Digambar Jain Temple of Chandraprabhu, and a newly installed 27 feet statue of Bahubali on a small hill. Google Map below shows the Bahubali Statue. The efforts taken by Dr. Shri Virendra Hegde for the development of the area are enormous. The ancient name of this tirth was ‘Kuduma’. This temple is more than a thousand years old. The charitable Jain merchant Hedge built this temple. Even today the members of his family look after the temple. Jains and pilgrims are provided with Boarding and lodging free of charge and this is very praiseworthy. It always seems as if a fair is held here. This is a center of co-ordination of all religions. On the auspicious occasion of Diwali in the month of Kartak, a conference of SarvadharmaSahitya is held here every year.
