Sights to See
The focal point of any visit to Pawapuri is the Jalmandir, the pilgrimage destination of the Jaina religion. Located in the middle of a pool, Jalmandir is one of the holiest shrines in Jainism. It is the place where Mahavir was cremated. It is no wonder that the temple is a major pilgrimage destination for Jains from all over the world, as well as an increasingly popular tourist attraction. Pilgrims reach the Jalmandir by a 600 feet long stone bridge that juts out from the shore of the pool.
The well-known Jaina site of Samosharan is deservedly a tourist attraction in Pawapuri not to be missed. The place is home to a beautiful temple of white marble. It’s the place where Mahavira delivered his sermon after getting full enlightenment. Samosharan has long since been a place for religious pilgrimage.
