About Tapasthali, Prayag :

Among the jain teerth kshetras of India, parallel to immortal teerth Shri Sammed Shikharji & Shri Ayodhyaji, Shri Prayag Teerth has also an important place. Prayag was the place of accepting penance (Deeksha Sthali) by first Teerthankar Bhagwan Rishabh Deo. Famous jain texts Harivamsh Puran & Padm-Puran declares Prayag as Rishabh Deo’s deeksha sthal. At present the city is famous as Allahabad in the world as the city of Maha-Kumbh.
