Pavapuri called as 'Apapuri' in the historywas ruled by Magadhas.This tirth is the place of the last monsoon sojourns of Mahavir Swami. Many kings and rich merchants came to hear the sermons of Bhagawan Mahavir. Bhagawan Mahavir preached and initiated many people. Since their doubts were removed, eleven Brahmins with 4400 disciples took diksa from Bhagawan. Bhagawan Mahavir appointed the eleven Brahmins as Gandharas. After giving his final sermons Bhagawan attained Nirvan on this land on the fifteenth day of the dark half of the month of Ashvin and on that dark night in the absence of Bhagawan, the gem of a lamp, people lighted innumerable lamps and in memory of that day, the whole city shines brightly with the light of thousands of lamps on the Diwali day even now. Nandivardhan, the elder brother of Bhagawan Mahavira built a small temple and installed the foot-idols of Bhagawan in them at the place of his last sermons. The temple is known today as Jalmandir. Under instructions of His Holiness Acharya Vijayramchandrasuri Maharaj Saheb, a splendid samavasaran was built on the sixth day of the bright half of the month of Magh in the year 2013 of the Virak era. 87 cm high, four idols of Bhagawan Mahvir were installed in it. In front of the samavasaran in this temple, there are idols of Mulnayak Mahavir Swami, Gautam Swami and Sudharma Swami. Since this is the land of nirvana of the last Tirthankara Bhagawan Mahvir every particle of this land deserves to be worshipped. The pure atmosphere of pure atoms and molecules of this place gives spiritual peace. The samvasaran of Bhagawan Mahvir, the new temple and a temple in the village are there. There are 7 more Digambar jain Mandirs in Pavapuri.
