Baton Relay Kolkata

Jain Temple Calcutta

Indian Postal Department had issued a stamp on this SHITAL NATH JAIN TEMPLE, Kolkata on 6-5-1935.


Earlier two special covers issued on the Baton Relay at Patna and Chennai are  related to JAINISM theme. Now I have come across one more cover, which is also related to Jainism. It is the special cover issued at Kolkata on 1st August 2010. This cover depicts some of the Heritage buildings and culture of West Bengal. Among them one is the photograph of SHITALNATH JAIN TEMPLE, KOLKATA. This is the main temple amongst the four shrines within Parasnath Jain Temple complex situated in the north eastern corner of Kolkata. This temple of 10th Jain Tirthankar Bhagwan Shitalnathji is one of the best temples in North India, which is famous for artistic work of mirrors and enamel on its wall and ceiling. The beautiful temple has a never-extinguishing lamp, which stands as the symbol of immortal existence of God. It was constructed by Rai Badridas Bahadur, the Mukim of Viceroy, in the year 1868 A.D. (Magh Shukla 5, V.S. 1924).
