About Shri Nakoda Jain Temple
Nakoda ji is one of the famous Jain temple of India.This sacred
tirtha is at a distance of 13 kms from Balotara Railway station
and 1 km from Mewad city. It is situated in the forest in the
hills. In this tirtha with a charming natural atmosphere all-
around, we have an idol of Mulnayaka Shri Parshvanath
Bhagavan. It is black in complexion, 58 cms in height and in
Padmasana posture. The idols is extremely charming and
miraculous. The miracles of the presiding deity of this spot, Shri
Bhairavaji Maharaj are well-known. We have a reference which
states that the ancient name of Nakoda was Virampur. It is said
that in the third century before the Vikrama era, two brothers,
Shri Virasen and Shri Nakoresen raised two villages Virampur
and Nakorenagar at a distance of twenty miles. They also get
constructed two temples of Shri Chandraprabhu Bhagavan and
Shri Suparshva Bhagavan.
The main idol is that of Shri Nakoda Parsvanath. This statue
was brought here from the village Nakoda which is near
Sinduri., hence the place is called Nakoda Parsvanath temple.
But this alone is not the attraction of the temple. The idol of
Shri Nakoda Bheruji was installed by Acharya Shri Vijay
Himachal Suri who also established idols of other Teerthankars
in this temple.
This is a very ancient temple and the construction work has
been going over the centuries. This place has become a
pilgrimage that people from every religion visits here.The
devotees believe that every particle of this wholly pilgrimage of
Nakoda is sacred. This is a universal feeling that entry into the
place is very pleasing. Elam and tranquility descends upon the
visitor. A feeling of Devine bliss is around. This is also believed
that who so ever is pays visit here, has his wishes fulfilled.
Although the temple is very ancient one but from time to time
renovations and repairs and additions have been made to the
temple. So it is in a very sound position.The temple has about
246 inscriptions which amply show that over the centuries, the
temple was extended, renovated, rebuilt and additions were
made to it. Even today the construction work is continuing.
Important Architectural Characteristics:
The temple has a very high elaborate shikher which is a rare
example of Architectural and sculptural elegance. There are
unparalleled statuettes and other floral patterns. The temple in
fact is treated as a pilgrimage and it is visited by all Janis,
Hindus of the entire country.
The idols of the period from the twelfth to the sixteenth
century are displayed here. The natural scene of this lonely
place among the hills in the forest is very beautiful, peaceful
and fascinating. The idol of Bhagawan Parshvanath is very
expressive. Among tirths in Rajsthan, this tirth has a special
