Shri Mandavagadh Tirth is located in a big fort named Mandu on a high peak in the Vindhyachal Mountain in Madhya Pradesh. The idol of Suparshvanath can be dated back to the fourteenth century. The color of the idol is white and is approximately ninety-two centimeters tall and it is in Padmasana posture. The temple has been magnificently decorated with intricate designs and has a unique architectural structure. There were once 700 temples at this place, many paushadshalas and was once populated by six lakh Jains. Many Jain warriors, Mantri's & Shravaks have passed here during 18th & 22nd centuries. Pethad Shah, decorated the whole city on the occasion of a welcome festival in honor of Dharmaghoshasurishvarji for his arrival. Householder Zanzan Shah took many pilgrimers to Mt. Shatrunjay from this city at the expense of crores of rupess. Sangram Soni of this place wrote the book, Buddhisagar and got the Agams written in letters of gold for which he was highly honored in the royal court of King Mohammed Khilji..
