We are pleased and honoured to inform you that by the Divine Grace of the Tirthankars, the Shikarbandhi Shree Mangalkari Parshvanath Jinalaya, which is located by the sea shore of Tithal at Shantidham Aradhana Kendra, will be celebrating its 5th Anniversary in December 2013. This supremely spiritual and reverberating Jain Tirth was consecrated on 7th December 2008 under the divine guidance & blessings of our beloved internationally renowned spiritual leader and scholar, Param Pujya Gurudev Shri Jinchandraji Maharaj.

Over a short span of time since its pratistha, this divinely inspirational Jinalaya evolved itself into a Jain Tirth, becoming a source of spiritual solace and guidance to a large number of devotees not only in India but also from all over the world. Every year various anusthans, aradhanas,sadhanas, poojans, pravachans, mantra sadhanas, shibbirs, prayers and religious ceremonies have been performed in the Jinalaya, thus making it the epicenter & catalyst for Jin Bhakti. Intensely devotional sadhanas and prayers of the faithful dharmapremis and devotees have resulted innumerous propitious miracles being credited to the Jinalaya (believed to be performed by the protector deities). The most recent been the continuous swaying of the Chatra above Shree Mangalkari Parshvanath Bhagawan during Posh Dasami Aradhana (celebration of Bhagawan Parshvanath Janma Kalyanak - Birth Day) in December 2011 and again in January 2013.
