Arahanthgiri Jain Math

History about the temple

History of Arahanthgiri Jain Math begins from the time of 322–185 BCE as the Last 'Shrut Kevali' Bhadrabahu expected to remain at this spot.  He remained at this spot to rehearse reflection and "Swadhyaya'' alongside 8000 different holy people. The Village Thirumalai where this Jain Math is found is otherwise called Arhatsugiri or Arihantgiri.  This over 2,000 years old temple is close to Tirumala. The complex is presently overseen by the Archeological Survey of India.

About the temple

Arahanthgiri Jain Math is a Jain Matha that was set up close to Tirumalai in August, 1998.  The Math is going by Bhattaraka Dhavalakeerthi.  The 16 meter Neminath Idol on the highest point of the slope has 140 stages in this area. This symbol is accepted to be dated as old as twelfth century.  An exceptionally renowned south Indian film has been shot around the topic of Neminatha.  We can see different old caverns existing in this Jain Math alongside a 16 meter symbol of Neminath and many Religious books.
