Nandyavarta Mahal

Jain Temple in Nalanda

Just outside Nalanda you’ll find the striking Nandyavarta Mahal at Kundalpur, believed by the Digambar Jain sect to be the birthplace of Lord Mahavira, the final tirthankar and founder of Jainism. The small temple complex houses three hot-white temples, the main featuring a to-scale postured idol of Mahavira.
