Friends ,

I am to introduce about a great wonder of this world, which is still unknown to the world.

An Idol of 23'rd Tirthankar of Jain Religion Lord Parshwanath at Digambar Jain Tirth Kshetra Nemgiri Jintoor is "ANTARIKSHA" meaning it is some inches above the ground in the air without any support, light passes between bottom of the Idol and the Pedestal , the Idol is about 6 feet in height and about 9 to 10 tones in weight made of black granite stone monolithic.

The Idol discovered by Shri Veer Sanghavi in the year 1532 Shake corresponding to 1610 AD , but the type of sculpture takes it back 3000 years i.e. 1000 BC.

The "Nagfana" the umbrella of snake with the Idol is carved very artistically in the shape of "Om".

Appearance of the Idol is very much pleasant and one can get peace of mind in the presence immediately.

Jintoor is situated between Aurangabad - Hydrabad highway and can be reached by Manmad - Nanded railway from Parbhani junction and by road 42 KM distance.

I request to all of you visit once.
