Foundation laid for another jain temple in canada

 



Hundreds of devotees lined up recently with their own bricks to lay the foundation of Bhagwan 1008 Aadinatha Jain Temple being built on Mayfield Road (Mayfield and Gore Road) in Brampton, on land donated by the Gyan Jain family. His Holiness Bhattarka Charukirtiji and Pandit Dharm Chand Sastri conducted the special religious pooja to purify the land and lay the foundation stones. This will be the first Jain temple of its kind in Canada, with the idol of Bhagwan Aadinath, the first tirthankar of this era, to be installed. An elders' home and a hospital are to form part of the complex.
