Pawapuri: Lord Mahavir attained `nirvana' (salvation from the endless cycle of life and death) at Pawapuri, and thus the place is a holy site for Jains. It is located 38 km from Rajgir in Nalanda district and 90 km from Patna, and it was here that Lord Mahavir, the last of the 24 Jain Tirthankars, breathed his last around 500 BC. He was cremated at Pawapuri, also known as Apapuri (the sinless town). There was a great rush to collect his ashes, and, as a result, so much soil was removed from the place of his cremation that a pond was created. Now, an exquisite marble temple, Jalmandir, stands magnificently on a rectangular island in the middle of the pond. There's another Jain temple, Samosharan, here. This is the place where Lord Mahavir delivered his last sermon.
