Shreyanshnath Temple
The Jain literature refers to Varanasi (Kashi) as a Jain Tirtha (holy place), as four of the major Jain Tirthankaras(religious prophets) were born here. According to Jain tradition, Kashi is the birthplace of Suparshvanath, Chandraprabhu, Shreyanshnath and Parshvanath -- the 7th, 8th, 11th, and 23rd Tirthankaras respectively. According to Jain beliefs, he became a Siddha - a liberated soul which has destroyed all of its karma. Shreyanshanatha was born to King Vishnu and Queen Vishnu Devi at Simhapuri, near Sarnath in the Ikshvaku dynasty. His father name was Vishnu Raj and mother name was Vishnu Devi. Lord Shreyanshnath was a saint minded person right from his beginning of age growth but due to his parents order, he embraced a married life and also ruled his father's empire for some time being. He himself became a father of a son also and within very few years, he handed over the kingdom to his son and became a muni or a religious sage. He soon got his sagacity and eternal enlightenment. He remained a disguised sage for 2 months. He left his body and attained nirvana on Sammed Mountain. His symbol is a Rhinoceros who is on one hand very strong and on the other hand, very calm, very peaceful and totally vegetarian at the same time. It is a single horn animal which teaches us to be uni-directional and a concentrated thinker. Lord Shreyanshnatha holds a very significant position in the Jain religious architecture. His temple was built in Varanasi by the jain followers of that time. It was built in 1824 and is said to be located at the spot where Shreyanshnath, the 11th Jain Tirthankara was born. This temple is dedicated to Thirthankara Parrshwanath. The structure of the temple is completely different from the familiar architecture of Jain Temples in India. The thin pointed golden tomb structure gives it the beautiful look from outside and spirituality inside it. The temple of Shreyanshnatha is located in the Archeological Park premises of the Sarnath Archeological Park of the ASI. The temple is nearby Dhamekha stupa and is surrounded by the excavated Archeological sites of the Sarnath Archeological Park. Near to it is also the famous Deer park of Sarnath.
