Champapur is quite ancient and historic Teerth Kshetra. Champapur is the only ‘Panch Kalyanaka Kshetra’ in the world. It is related to Panch Kalyanaka: – “(i) Garbha, (ii) Janma, (iii) Tapa, (iv) Gyan and (v) Moksha” of 12th Teerthankar Bhagwan Vasupoojya (The first ascetic saint).
The Champapur was the capital of ‘Anga Janpada’. The Anga Janpada was one of the 52 Janpadas established by Adi Teerthankar Bhagwan Rishabh Deo. Champapur also existed as Maha Janpada among the six Maha Janpadas during the time of Bhagwan Mahaveer Swami. This place is famous because of its relation to following :
“The three Chaturmasa period of Bhagwan Mahaveer Swami during his Dikshakal, Religious propagation centre of Anga-Banga-Magadh-Vaishali, Test of modesty of Sati Subhadra and Anantmati, Aahardan to Bhagwan Mahaveer Swami by Sati Chandan Bala”. Champapur is also related to great stories of ‘origin of Harivansha, Shripal-Mainasundari, Shri Dharma Ghosh Muni, King Karna of Mahabharata, King Mudrak and great architect Vishvakarma’.
Champapur has assumed more importance because of arrival of ‘Samavsharan’ of all 24 Teerthankaras. This place is Siddha Kshetra, as well as lot of miracles also happened here. The Reddish Diamond colored Padmasana idol of 1008 Bhagwan Shri Vasupoojya seated on the principal altar of main temple is quite attractive and beautiful, provides peace to the mind & soul of the devotees. The desires of devotees get fulfilled when they offer their prayers devotionally & with pure heart.
