Jain Temples at Kumbharia

Kumbharia Jain Temples

Kumbharia is situated about fourteen miles southeast of Abu Road and one and a half miles from Ambaji in the Banaskantha district of Gujarat. Once the whole region from Ambaji to Kumbharia was known as Ārāsaṇa, but now both the sites are isolated from each other and are going by their own names, and it is not yet certain when and by whom they were founded. It is equally difficult to say who founded Ārāsaṇa and when it was destroyed.

There is a group of five Jaina temples, all built of white marble and facing north. The temples are still under worship and are dedicated to Mahāvīra, Śāntinātha, Pārśvanātha, Neminātha and Sambhavanātha. The present dedication, however, seems to be incorrect, for a Tīrthamālā of 1442 A.D. attributes the dedication to Ādinātha, Śāntinātha, Neminātha, Pārśvanātha and Mahāvīra.
