Speciality of Jain Teerth :

The special feature of this holy place is of being the four kalyanak i.e. Chyavan, Jan, Deeksha & Kevalgyan of bhagwan Padmaprabh. Bhagwan Mahaveer has also visited this place before & after his attaining Kevalgyan. The king Satanik, was very spiritual in nature. His wife queen Sati Mrigavati (daughter of king Chetak of Vaishali) took deeksha from Prabhu Mahaveer after transferring the ruling rights to her son Udayan. Sati Chandanbala has also taken deeksha from Prabhu veer at this place. The situation of taking her deeksha has a different story behind itself. Once upon a time, Prabhu Veer took a tough decision that he will accept food from the princess without having a single hair on her head, the legs must be tide with chains, one of the foot should be outside of her premises while the otter be remaining inside with tears in her eyes and should be standing for wiping out Bakla in a Chhajada. As the decision was tough to be fulfilled, Prabhu remained in huger for long period, the followers were annoyed with the conditions. Meanwhile, her owners treated Sati Chandanbala wildly. They have tied her legs with chains and use to give her Bakla as her food. Before taking her food she use to donate some of it to saints or Brahmins. The bad days of Chandanbala were nearing to an end. Bhagwan Veer was passing by her house as Chandanbala came out with the Bakla's in a Chhajada for her usual donation. Seeing Prabhu she got exited and at the same time Prabhu also saw her. The conditions Prabhu has decided for his food acceptance was the same accept the tears in the eyes. Prabhu turned away without accepting her food donation. Seeing Prabhu walking back without accepting her foods, Chandanbala thought of her unluckiness and flow of tears came out of her, the followers had a sight of this and in joy ness of fulfilling the conditions of food acceptance for Prabhu Veer, they started praising Chandanbala while Devraj Indra with others powered flowers on her and devtas started tuning their musicís. At the same time a miracle took place and Prabhu came back to her and accepted her offerings. The chains in her foot were realised, hairs grow on her head along with a 'mukut' and lot of ornaments appeared on her body. Sati Chandanbala took deeksha from Prabhu Veer and became the first lady follower of him. This place has got the importance of being the birthplace of muni Shri Kepi Kevil.
