Shri Atishaya Kshetra 1008 Sahastra Fani Parsvanath Dig. Jain Mandir Jat Marg, Bijapur (Karnataka) Pin – 586104
This temple came to knowledge just before 100 Years. The principal deity Lord Parsvanath’s idol was found below ash that is very attractive and miraculous. Its specialty is that while we drop milk or water in one serpent hood it comes out through all the mouths and thus whole idol gets showered. This idol is 5 feet in height and in padmasana posture, Black in color. A Choubeesee is also here 3 feet in height with principal deity Lord Parsvanath. In another room an idol of Lord Parsvanath Black in color and one of Lord Mahaveer 5 feet in height Black in color, both in cross legged seating posture are installed. All the idols belong to 10th, 14th & 15th century.
