Temple Info This is know as Teerthraj (King of Teerths). Shri Sameed Shikharji Teerth Kshetra has the top rank among all the Jain Teerth Kshetras, being the salvation place of 20 Teerthankaras and large number of saints. Usually all the 24 Tirthankars attain Salvation from here. In addition, infinite number ascetic saints/munies also attained salvation from here. Impact of pilgrimage of infinite ascetic’s salvation places is such that an ocean of devotion evades in the heart of pilgrims all the year round Pandit Dhyanatraiji has written in his ‘Pooja’- "Ek baar Bande jo koi, tako narak pashugati na hoi" if one goes for adoration of Sammed Shikharji once in his life, he does not go in lives of animal and in the hell. According to ethics if a person adorates Sameed Shikharji engaging his full mind and heart (i.e. with full devotion), he attains salvation in maximum 49 lives of his near future and thus he gets free from worldly affairs, affection and aversion. This all happens by thinking about the work of Teerthankaras their life free from worldly affairs, their penance and meditation, by thinking about the preaches they delivered in Samavsharan and ultimately applying their education and principles in ones life by accepting ascetism. This way this Kshetra is highly sacred. Due to sacredness, so many cruel animals living here in the forest like lion tiger etc., never harm to pilgrims even while coming in front of each other.
