champapur is the lokotama bhumi – thebest soil in the universe from the religious point of view – where all

the five kalyanaks-“(i) garbha, (ii) janma, (iii) tapa, (iv) gyan and

(v)moksha of tirthankar vasupujya took place. it is the only

historic teerth kshetra which called the ‘panch kalyanaka kshetra’

in the world.
champapur is famous because of its relation to following :

  • “the threechaturmasa period of bhagwan mahaveer swami during hisdikshakal
  • religiouspropagation centre of anga-banga-magadh-vaishali,
  • test of modesty ofsati subhadra and anantmati, aahardan to bhagwan mahaveerswami by sati chandan bala”.

this teerth is also related to great stories of

‘origin of harivansha, shripal-mainasundari, shri dharma ghosh

muni, king karna of mahabharata, king mudrak and great

architect vishvakarma’.

champapur has assumed more importance

because of arrival of ‘samavsharan’ of all 24 teerthankaras. this

place is siddha kshetra, as well as lot of miracles also happened

here. the reddish diamond colored padmasana idol of 1008

bhagwan shri vasupoojya seated on the principal altar of main

temple is quite attractive and beautiful, provides peace to the mind

& soul of the devotees. the desires of devotees get fulfilled when

they offer their prayers devotionally & with pure heart.
