Mangi-Tungi Jai.n Templ.e.s

Mangi-Tungi is a prominent twin-pinnacled peak with plateau in between, located near Tahrabad (Maharashtra). The place with its numerous temples is an important place of pigrimage in Jainism and is described as Siddha Kshetra, meaning a gateway to the state of enlightenment.

Around 4,500 steps lead to the foot of the peak which is enriched with several monuments of historical and religious prominence. Besides, there are numerous caves named after great Tirthankaras such as Mahavira, Adinath, Shantinath and Parshva. A grand fair is held here annually during Kartik (September-October) where people visit in large numbers to witness the festival.
