View Mohanbadi Swetambar Jain Temple in a larger map
Mohanbadi is one of the historical Swetambar Jain religious place in Jaipur situated between Surajpole gate and Galta at Surajpole road, Jaipur. The premises is managed by Shri Jain Swetambar Khartar Gachchh Sangh, Jaipur.
Sri Sanwalia Parasnath Temple and Dadabadi were built in the 18h century. We are in process of collecting and publishing history of this Jain heritage site.
There are black colored stone idol of Sanwalia Parasnath and a white marble feet print of Lord Rishabhdev, the Adinath along with some other idols and Dada Jin Kushal Suri feet print. The temple is an explicit example of Mogul- Rajput school of architecture with beautiful wall paintings.
An old Dadabadi along with Shantivijay Suri Guru Mandir are also situated in this premises in the left side of the Parasnath temple.
Funeral ceremonials of Jain monks and nuns (Sadhu / Sadhwi) are used to take place at Mohanbadi since centuries. Samadhi Mandir of several Jain saints such as Shivji Ram Ji Maharaj, Pujya Jayanand muni, Pujya Punya Sri Ji Maharaj, Samata Murti Sri Vichakshan Sri ji Maharaj and Agam Jyoti Pravartini Sri Sajjan Sri ji Maharaj are built inside the premises.
Khartar Gachchh Sangh, Jaipur is building a five floored air conditioned Dharamshala with all modern amenities at Mohanbadi premises.
