Karnataka : Jainaragutti - Jain Tirth - Muni Suvrata Nath

Muni Suvrata Nath Jain Temple

Jainaragutti, Karnataka


After Shravanabelgola, well known for the historic Bahubali statue in Channarayapatna taluk, Jainaragutti near Adagur in Hassan taluk is all set to become a major pilgrimage centre for Jains. A statue of Muni Suvrata Nath, the 20th Thirthankara, has come up at the place. The statue, including the kamala peetha (lotus seat) and an image of tortoise at the base, is about 54-ft tall.

The black stone (Krishna shile) for the statue was sourced at Srirampura in Hosadurga taluk of Chitradurga district. A team of sculptors led by Jagadish Prasad Sharma from Jaipur in Rajasthan worked for about six months on the statue. The statue was placed on the pedestal with the help of cranes .
