Sri Shantinath Digambar Jain Athishaya Kshetra, Shivpuri


Sri Shantinath Digambar Jain Athishaya Kshetra, located 13 kilometre outside the historical town of Shivpuri is an ancient temple, believed to be more than eight hundred years old. The temple situated in the small town Sesai is easily accessible from the AgraMumbai Highway.

The temple is as the name suggests, a holy place of worship for members of the Jain community. To further the understanding of Jain religion and the history of Jainism in India, the temple houses a museum within the temple complex. The museum has several Jain idols from Ancient India and allows visitors to explore the history of a predominant religion.

The focal point of the temple is the idol within the sanctum sanctorum measuring a staggering fifteen feet in height. The brown color of the idol is misleading as approximately eight metals were believed to form the alloy from which the idol is fashioned.
