Uwassaggaharam, Shri Uwassaggaharam Parshwa Tirth, Nagpura

Situated on the bank of river Sheonath, amidst entrancing natural scenery, this shrine of the 23rd Teerthankar Lord Shri Parshwanath commemorates his holy visit to this region about 3000 years ago as a Shraman (A wandering mendicant dedicated to self-realization through self sacrifice). Scattered Jain Sculpture, large number of devotees and dilapidated ancient shrine along with Lord’s Foot – prints historically, proves the Lord’s journey to this area. The mysterious manner of locating, finding, procuring and then installing this ancient idol also proves categorically, his divine grace. This shrine is virtually an epic of Jain-devotional philosophy engraved on stones. A pilgrimage to this shrine inspires noble conduct, self -discipline, penance and equanimity.
This is a Jain shrine in Nagpura established in 1995. The campus houses temples, guest houses, a garden and Naturopathy and Yoga Centre. The entrance to the resplendent marble temple of Shri Parshwanath is through a 30 feet gate that has the idol of Parshwanath, supported by four pillars (representing the four essentials of spiritual atonement, i.e., wisdom, introspection, good conduct, penance), being worshipped by two elephants. Sacred water, amiya , oozes from the idol here. Hundreds of pilgrims visit this shrine on full-moon.
