Shri Antrikshji Parshvanath Prabhu - Heman Kumar Shah, Mumbai

Param Pavan, Pragat Prabhavi, Shri Antrikshji Parshvanath prabhu


As on date, there are the three most Prachin (Ancient) Jin Murtis namely Shri Neminath Dada – Girnar, Shri Shankeshwar Parshvnath – Shankeshwar and Shri Antrikshji Parshvnath – Shirpur-Maharashtra.

We are all aware of the mahimas of Shri Shankeshwar Dada and Shri Neminath Dada but the mahima of Shri Antrikshji Parshvnath is no less.

Key Highlights of this Tirth

- The 42 inch Shri Antriksh Parshvanath Murti is during the time of Bhagvan Munisuratswami.
- Murti was made out of Clay and Cow dung
- Murti Sthapna was done by Dev’s from Devlok and not by any human being.
- Murti is not touching the floor (it is in air without any support) and a cloth can pass below it
- The Tirth / Murti get referred in “Sakal Tirth Vandana” Sutra (spoken every day during morning pratikaman).


Shri Antariksh Parshvanath is situated in the outskirt of the village Shirpur about 75 kilometers away from Akola railway station. Akola lies on the Bombay-Nagpur rail route.


The history of this Tirth & this idol is very ancient. A legend says that, once King Khadushan – the ruler of ‘Patal Lanka’ & King Ravana’s brother-in-law was travelling by sky across this region. He stepped down here as it was time for his meals. By an oversight, Kings employees Mali and Sumali had forgotten to carry the image of the Lord for his worship. In order to abide by his vow - to have meals only after performing the Lord’s puja, he made an idol out of mud & cow dung. After fulfilling his promise, he later submerged the idol into a pond nearby. The idol remained invisible in the pond for many years & miraculously manifested itself in Vikram Year 1142.A new temple was built by the ‘Sangh’ to install the idol which was constructed on the 5th day (full moon phase) of the ‘Maha’ month in Vikram Year 1142 by His Holiness Acharya Abhaydevasurishvarji Ma.Sa. Numerous miraculous events have been associated with this remarkably artistic & beautiful idol which is known to fulfill the wishes of the devotees.

It was renovated several times. Once again the idol was reinstalled under instructions of Shree Ganivarya Bhavavijayji, on the fifth day of the bright half of the month of Chaitra in the year 1715 of the vikram era. The idol is Black-colored idol of Bhagawan Parshvanath in the semi-Padmasana posture around 107 centimeters high. This idol is very miraculous and is famous for getting diseases removed with the grace of Lord Shri Antarikshji Parshvanath .

It is said that at the time of its installation the idol was at horizontal distance of six fingers from the ground level. This is the reason that it is called Antariksh Parshvanath Bhagawan. Now a day the right part of the idol touches the ground barely at one point only and the remaining part just hangs it over.


Appeal: The aim of this article is to make more and more people aware about this Prabhavak and Prachin Tirth and to pay a visit to the tirth.
