The first ever Tirthankara of Jains dharma and the for most of persons to give rise to human civilization, Shri Rishabhadeva Bhagavan visited this sacred place ninety nine times. All the twenty three Tirthankaras, except Shri Neminath Bhagavan, delivered to all humanity the auspicious, message of Jaina dharma. Being a great city of temples, Shatrunjaya Tirtha is Siddhakshetra of all times as defined and approved by the Agamas. The central figure in this complex is Shri Adishvara Bhagavan with his white and pure complexion, seated on a lotus-shaped SEAT.
