Digambar Jain Trilok Shodh Sansthan
Digambar Jain Trilok Shodh Sansthan (Regd.)or Digambar Jain Institute of Cosmographic Research (DJICR)
In the year 1972, this institute was established by the inspiration of Pujya Gyanmati Mataji and in the year 1974, the institute bought a small piece of land for the construction of Jambudweep in the way of Nashia at Hastinapur, the historical pilgrimage of Meerut (U.P.) .
At first, in Feb. 1975, a small Jinalaya (temple) was built on this land to consecrate 10¼ ft. high standing postured idol of 24th Tirthankar Lord Mahavir Swami. The height of this idol resembles the actual height of the Lord i.e. 7 hands. This Jinalaya was later developed as the unique ‘Lotus Temple’ (Kamal Mandir) in the year 1990. By the miraculous effect of the same Lord Mahavir, this Tirth has continuously forwarded on the path of development and with continuous new constructions, it has been established as the unique tourist place of the world. Devotees fulfil their wishes by the darshan of this miraculous idol and the series of offering Chhatra, igniting Deepak and reciting Mahavir Chaleesa before Him, always remains continuous.
