Kulpakji Jain Mandir

About Kulpakji Jain Mandir:

One of the most popular religious sites, this renowned 2,000 year old Jain temple is located in the village of Kolanupaka on the Hyderabad-Warangal Highway. During the Kakatiyas Period, Jainism flourished in Kolanupaka and it became an important center of pilgrimage specifically for the svetambara Jains from South India. Idols of three Jain tirthankaras (spiritual teachers) – Rishabhanatha, Neminatha, and Mahavira – are housed in the temple. The idol of Rishabhanatha, the first tirthankara, is carved of blue stone and is famously known as ‘Manikyaswami’.

As per legend, this Manikyaswami image was earlier worshipped by the wife of Ravana, Mandodari. The idol of Mahavir, the last tirthankara, is carved out of monolithic jade stone. Built of red sandstone and white marble, the temple features several ancient Jain inscriptions. The twelve armed idol of Padmavati is different from the usual idols, which feature four arms.
