Pawapuri is a place that is located in the Nalanda district of the state of Bihar. Pawapuri is a holy pilgrimage site for many Jains and there are many Jain related monuments and buildings that can be seen here. Pawapuri is an ancient center and it is more than 2600 years old. The place is famous for being the burial site of Lord Mahavir and there is a pond that is located at the site where his body was cremated.

There are a few temples that are located here and the architecture of these is exquisite. Some of the main temples are the Marble Temple, Jalmandir and the Samosharan. The marble temple is situated in the middle of a lotus pond and its architecture is a feast for the eyes. The Jalmandir is located on an island that is rectangular in shape. One can find Lord Mahavir’s foot print in Jalmandir. Lord Mahavir delivered his last sermon at the temple of Samosharan. Many Jains from all over the country visit this sacred site throughout the year.

The place is generally filled with devotees during the festival of Diwali as Jains consider it the birthday of Lord Mahavir.
