A marble temple, the Jalmandir, was later built in the middle of the tank, and is now a major pilgrimage spot for Jains. Jal Mandir marks the spot where Lord Mahavira was cremated in Pawapuri. According to legend, there was a great rush among the gathered devotees to collect his ashes resulting in a lake being created in the hollow. The temple was built in the middle of this lake by King Nandivardhan. Surrounded by blooming lotuses the temple enshrines the “Charan Paduka” or holy sandals of Mahavira. It is built in the shape of a “Vimana” or palace and is connected to the mainland by a 600-ft long stone bridge. Apart from its immense religious significance, the temple is a beautiful structure with a tranquil and scenic setting. Jal Mandir is made in shape of Vimana. The sanctum of temple enshrines old “Charan Paduka” of Lord Mahavira. Jal Mandir is top in the list of tourist places to visit in Pawapuri.
