Mirpur Jain Temple is situated in Mirpur, a fortified town in the Sirohi district of Rajasthan, India. The town has four Jain temples, of which this is one.
Mirpur Jain Temple was built in the 9th century AD, during the reign of the Rajputs. The Mirpur temple is generally thought to be the oldest marble monument in Rajasthan. It is devoted to the 23rd Jain tirthankara, Pārśva. The temple was destroyed by Mahmud Begada in the 13th century, and was rebuilt and renovated in the 15th century. These days only the main temple with its mandapa is standing, high on its pedestal with carved pillars and engraved parikrama representing every aspect of Indian mythology.
This temple is also mentioned in the ‘World And Encyclopedia of Art’. The remains scattered over here reveal that this was a large city in the past.
This temple is more than 1,100 years old temple dedicated to Parshvanatha,the twenty-thirdh Jain Tīrthankara of the present age. This temple belongs to Digamber sect. of Jainism. The Moolnayak of the temple is a 90 cm tall white colored idol of Parshvanatha called Bhidbhanjan Parshwanathji. This sculpture illustrates Parshwanath's triumph over Kamatha, his arch enemy, in considerable detail. In this sculpture, Dharnnendra raises a hood of 5 cobras to provide shelter for Lord Parshwanath from the relentless storm set into motion by Kamatha. The indescribable artistry of this temple is famous throughout the world and is considered by many to be unmatched. The ancient art of this temple served as a model for the later Dilwara and Ranakpur temples.
