Muleva Parshwanath Jain Temple - Ahmedabad

 

Around 400 hundred years old and situated in the heart of Ahmedabad City at Relief Road, Shri Muleva Parshwanath alias Moriya Parshwanath Jain Temple’s structure was in a good and decent condition. During the year 1973, Sheth Shri Kasturbhai Lalbhai decide to expand the dome area by adjoining temple’s parts of East, West and South according to Shilpshastra without moving the main idol of lord and also to use stone specifically of Balesar, Rajasthan.

 

The contract of the above said work was assigned to my father Late Shri Chamanlal Keshavlal Sompura by Sheth Hutheesing Keshrising Trust – Under instruction and supervision of Trustee Shree Surottambhai Purshottambhai Hutheesing. In the construction of the temple, first time in India the stone of Balesar, Rajasthan was used which were 17.5 foot long beams. The domes and beams were designed, constructed and sculptured which have estimated 80 tons of weight supported by four pillars of the temple. The design of the temple is considered unique among the other Jain Temples in India.

 

In August 1974 due to sad demise of my father the work assigned to him had been satisfactorily completed by me.

The temple work was started by my father Chamanlal Keshavlal Sompura using stones from Rajasthan’s TIWARI, BALESAR as well as stones from Porbandar. The work also included constructing main gate, RAYAN PAGLA, GHANTAKARN DEV, DEV KULIKA. The temple’s cellar under main dome was constructed without using beams and according to ancient technique.
