Overview[edit] Kundalpur has a large image of Rishabhanatha (also known as Bade Baba). The image is in sitting (Padmasana) posture and is 15 feet in height.[1] This is also the place of salvation of Antim Kevali Shridhar Kevali.[2] There are 63 temples of various types. A temple called Jal Mandir is situated in the middle of the pond Vardhaman Sagar. Bade Baba temple: Among all the temples the most famous is the Bade Baba temple with Bhagwan Adinath (affectionately termed "Bade Baba") as the principal deity. This is the oldest temple at Kundalpur. According to an inscription[3] of Vikram Samvat 1757, the temple was re-discovered by Bhattaraka Surendrakirti of Mulasangha-Balatkaragana-Sarasvati Gachchha and was rebuilt from ruins by his disciple, with assistance from Bundela ruler Chhatrasal.[4] Acharya Vidyasagar has been the main source of inspiration for the construction, development and renovation of the main temple and various structures at Kundalpur. He is often referred to as Chhote Baba in relation to Bade Baba image. Construction of a massive and spacious new Bade Baba temple was initiated in 1999 after consulting architectural and religious experts. The main image was transferred to the sanctum of the new structure on January 15, 2006. The new temple will be in the classical Nagar style with some elements of the modern Rajasthani architecture.
