Tristutik Gaccha

Tristutik was an origin of Tapa Gachchha of Shvetambar sect of Jainism. It was established in 1194 AD (Vikram Samvat 1250.) and was formerly known as Agama Gachchha in ancient times.

The Tristutik Gachchha was reformed by Acharya Rajendrasuri. As in the Tristutik way of worship, there is only devotion to Jain Tirthankar, they do not believe in worshiping other gods known as "devi-devata" like Padmavati, Bharava, Gantakarna, Manibhadra etc. during the rituals like Pratikraman, Samayik, Bhavanusthans. They respect them as extraordinary living beings and sadharmik and do remember and honour in special rituals of Derasar Pratistha etc. This sect of Jainism is also in the Murtipujaka deravasi division of Shvetambar.
