Symbol of emotional integration Digambar Jain Atishaya Keshtra Shri Mahaveerji is a holy place of pilgrimage in Rajasthan (India). It is dedicated to Lord Mahaveer, the 24th Tirthankar.

Thousands of pilgrims throng here everyday to have Darshan of Lord Mahavir and offer prayers for attaining peace and solace. The devotees who come here experience eternal happiness and self contentment, which is unique in itself.

The coral-coloured icon of Lord Mahaveer was found by a cobbler-cultivator, some four hundred years ago. When the cow started returning bereft of its milk, the cobbler became inquisitive and followed the cow to the mound. It was noticed that the cow belonging to the cobbler used to go upon a sand dune besides the river Ghambhir, and ooze out its milk. Seeing this miracle, he dug up the mound and unearthed the icon of Lord Mahaveer in crossed legged ("Padmasan") posture.
