This magnificent & majestic spot has been inaugurated in Feb. 2001 and is dedicated to the first Jain Teerthankar Rishabhdev. Following structures are present in the premises.
In the centre of the Tapasthali, 14 feet high, red coloured statue of Rishabhdev in padmasana posture is installed on 108 feet long, 62 feet wide & 55 feet high Kailash Parvat. The idol is visible to the devotees from a distance. On the Kailash Parvat, 72 idols of 24 Teerthankars are constructed in 72 artistic temples.
A Temple under Kailash Parvat with 50x50 feet dimension has been constructed in which 3 feet high idol of Rishabhdev, made of metal in lotus posture is consecrated.
31 feet high Keetri Stambh, made up of solid stone, is also built on one side of the Kailash Parvat. On the top & middle of the Stambh (Pillar) 4 idols of Rishabhdev, one in each direction are placed. This pillar is the symbol of non-violence (Ahimsa) & world peace.
Rishabhdeo Deeksha Kalyanak Tapovan Temple:
In this temple the standing idol of Rishabhdev in meditation posture is installed below Vat Vriksha (Banyan tree). This temple symbolizes the ceremony, when Rishabhdev accepted Digamber Jain Muni Deeksha below Vat Vriksha at Prayag (Allahabad).
It is believed that Rishabhdev attained omniscience (Keval Gyan) in this garden of Puram Tal Pur. To demonstrate this historical event Samavsaran has been created in the temple, on the other side of the premises & designed it as lotus. Jain devotees offer gold & silver Chatra (canopy) here. Accommodation with 25 deluxe flats, 24 rooms equipped with water, electricity & food facilities are available 24 hours to the devotees.
