About Pisanhari Madiya

Pisanhari Marhiyaa Dig. Jain Atishaya Kshetra Jabalpur is a famous pilgrimage place known since last 500 years for its extra ordinary story of development and dedication of an old woman, who worked hard for construction of a Jain temple here by her own income and labor, situated on a little hill – 300 Ft. in height.
It is said that there lived an old woman in the city of Jabalpur at that time. Grinding of wheat floor by hand driven grinder was the only source of income for her. Once she heard preaches of a Jain saint [monk] and getting inspired by monk, she decided to construct a Jain-temple. But there was the problem of money being poor, so she decided to work hard instead of bringing money from others. The power of firm decision made her strong enough to work harder to collect money for construction of her dream temple, even being old enough her dedication filled high level of energy in her and this continued up to the sufficient collection of money.
And, one day people saw her with an axe on the top of hill cleaning and preparing the land for temple making it plane and free from bushes and stones. Looking this, the public rushed towards the hill with necessary equipments and tumblers to make sure their contribution in this holy work-the construction of temple. But that old woman worked restlessly even after getting the cooperation of society, after working hard whole day she stayed there in the night as night watchman and used that time for the planning and for necessary arrangements of next day. Thus, one day the temple completed and collection also vanished, that old woman had no money to install gold pots on the top of pinnacle. So she thought again and again, she was not ready to collect money from public for this purpose and at last she decided to place the both stones of her floor grinder on the top of pinnacle. Thus she sacrificed her only source of income and those stones are still present there glorifying her dedication. But this is disappointing that we don’t know her name, history failed in keeping safe her name. To keep her memory long lasting, this holy place is named “Pisanhari ki Marhiyaa”, she was called by her business-Pisanhari (the woman preparing wheat floor on hand operated stone-mill).
According to another saying, about 500 years ago this area was ruled by Gond Rajputs. There was a Jain Peshwa in service of king that time and he also constructed a Jain Temple on above said hill, so this kshetra also called Peshwa ki Marhiyaa. But the first story is more popular because of old woman’s dedication in the path of religion.
Atishaya – Here is a pond that was dry in previous time, after arrival of Poojya Ganesh Prashadji Varni, due to his spirituality this pond became full of water, that pond is still present and called ‘Varni Kund’.
