Shri Digamber Jain Samaj, Bangkok Print E-mail
October 24, 2007
by Pramod M. Jain

Shri Digamber Jain Samaj, BangkokIt gives us immense pleasure to inform that Shri Digamber Jain Samaj, Bangkok has completed the transfer of ownership of a 3 storey townhouse property on 19th July 2007 in the name of “Digambar Jain Foundation” (DJF) at house # 143/3, near K. Building Apartment, Soi Putha Osoth, off  Maha Set Road,  Suriwong, Bangkok.

It is indeed a memorable event and a milestone for the growth of Jainism in Thailand and for all Digambar Jains living here for past several years.

The Jin Bimb (statue) and prayer hall are located on the 2nd Floor. Ground floor contains store, shower and WC area. 3rd Floor is an open hall for Swadhyay. The space is  adequate for the current size of Digamber Jain community.

Even though, Digamber and Shwetamber, both sects are followers of same Tirthankers and Jain philosophy and have jointly observed all major Jain festivals in the past and will continue to do so in future as well, it was felt during past 2-3 years by Digamber Jain community in Thailand to have their own Jin Mandir (Temple) owing to the fact that Digamber Jin Bimb is Vitraagi (without any adoration) and the method of worshipping and Pujan vidhi is also different from other sects.

There are over 500 Jain families living in Thailand, mostly in Bangkok, for past several years. Out of them, about 100 are Digamber Jain families and the rest are Shwetamber  families. Shwetambers also have their Derasar in the vicinity,  built  few years ago. Majority of the Jains are in the Gems and Jewelry business.

In April 2004, current President of All India Digamber Jain Mahasabha, Shri Nirmal Kumar Ji Sethi, had visited Bangkok and had inspired us to construct a temple for the Digamber Jains.
