Shree Pavapuri Tirtvh Jiv Metri Dham is situated at Sirohi district of Rajasthan. This campus is developed by K. P. Sanghvi Group and it comprises of a Jain Tirth (Temple complex) and Jeev Raksha Kendra (Animal Welfare Center).

The Tirth derived its name after the Pavada Agriculture well that exists there.

Shri Kumarpalbhai V. Shah inspired Late Shri Hajarimalji Poonamchandji Sanghvi (Bafna) and Shri Babulalji Poonamchandji Sanghvi (Bafna), the founders of K. P. Sanghvi Group, to construct a Tirth Dham. They started construction and development of the campus on May 30, 1998, Saturday (Jeth Shukla 15, 2054 V. S.). The initial thought was to construct a small temple and a shelter for 100 cows only but by God’s grace and blessings the campus is now spread over more than 500 acres of land. The temple complex occupies 31,01,472 sq. ft. area and the Jeev Raksha Kendra (Animal Welfare Center) occupies 71,96,112 sq. ft. area to provide shelter to 6,300 stray cattle.


It took two and a half years to construct the temple with an average of 400 artisans working daily. The construction was completed on February 07, 2001, Wednesday (Magh Shukla 14, 2057 V. S.) and was finally opened for worship. The devotees were spellbound during the Pratishtha Mahotsav, opening ceremony of the Tirth Dham.

Sirohi, with fourteen Jain temples surrounding it, has been a revered pilgrim center in Rajasthan, Northwestern India. For centuries, these shrines have comforted countless devotees seeking divine interventions in their lives. Keeping this tradition alive is Shree Pavapuri Tirth Dham, offering devotees the opportunity to find peace within them.


Shree Pavapuri Tirth Dham is a shining example of Jain Temple Architecture and Culture. It is a beautiful blend of art and architecture, enshrined in pure values that have percolated through generations. A visit here is therapeutic for the mind, body and soul.


The blissful state of mind and peace experienced by a  soul in Pavapuri cannot be put into words as it can only be felt. The calm, beautiful, scenic and vast complex of Pavapuri sits ensconced amidst the contemplative Aravali Mountain range that sits like a determined yogi in meditation.
