London Jain Temple - August 2006 - Panchkalyanak Mahotsav

The Panchkalyanak Pratistha Mahotsav celebration took place between 4-9 Aug 2006 and was a momentous occasion and Jain sadharmis from all around the world came to take part in the celebrations. Many Jains in the UK even previously did not know of our mandal here in Wealdstone, but celebrating this pratishta mahotsav has put our Shree Mahavirswami Jain Temple on the Jain map as a place to visit in the UK. A video clip of the "Shobha Yatra", a highlight during the Pratishta can be found in video resource section. The renewed bhav has been quite visible in the remainder of this year 2006 through a much increased membership of our Association and a packed crowd in the mandal during Das Lakshan parva this year.

No one photo could be found to truly epitomise the pratishta mahotsav however there are several thousand of the pratishta in the photo resource section. The result of our pratishta can be seen below with a 61" pure white marble pratishthit pratima of Mahavir Bhagwan backed by a gold-leaf floating bhamandal with pratimas of Prashvanath and Mahavir Bhagwans in front.

Transformation of Temple Grounds 2006

With the inside of the mandir transformed it was fitting that improvements were made outside the mandir too. This resulted in the installation of a manstambh seen on the right of the photograph and of the bronze cast of Gurudev Kanji Swami seen on the left. The front face of the mandir was also renewed with new small shikars adorning the top in front of the main three shikhars and flag.
