There are 31 Jain temples of different
sizes, age and character. All these are
dated later than the Hindu temples. The
Jain community is managing the temples
since 1939 and have done
some restoration work.
Followers of Jainism are called "Jains",
a word derived from the Sanskrit word
jina and connoting the path of victory in
crossing over life's stream of rebirths
through an ethical and spiritual life.
Devout Jains take five main vows:
ahiṃsā (non-violence), satya (truth),
asteya (not stealing), brahmacharya
(celibacy or chastity), and aparigraha
These principles have impacted Jain
culture in many ways, such as leading
to a predominantly vegetarian lifestyle
that avoids harm to animals
and their life cycles.
Jainism has two major ancient
sub-traditions, Digambaras and
Śvētāmbaras; and several smaller
sub-traditions that emerged
in the 2nd millennium CE.
The Digambaras and Śvētāmbaras
have different views on ascetic practices,
gender and which Jain texts can
be considered canonical. Jain
mendicants are found in all
Jain sub-traditions except Kanji Panth
sub-tradition, with laypersons (śrāvakas)
supporting the mendicants'
spiritual pursuits with resources.
