October 7 @ 6:00 am EDT
October 8 @ 10:00 pm EDT



Chaitya Paripati is one of the essentials of Paryushan, where Shravak or Shravika makes a pilgrim (jatra) to a Chaitya (Temple). This pilgrimage is done after Paryushan for worship, prayer and meditation by visiting 5 different Chaityas (temples).

With this in mind, we have planned a Chaitya Paripati – visit to 5 Jain temples during the weekend of Oct 7-8, 2023.

  • Cherry Hill (NJ)
  • Franklin Town (NJ)
  • Siddhachalam (NJ)
  • Jain Center of Allentown (PA)
  • Jain Center of Central Pennsylvania (PA)

We will leave at 6.30 AM on Saturday, Oct 7 from our Jain Center, and return at 9:30 PM on Sunday, Oct 8th with overnight stay at Siddhachalam. There might be some changes to the list of temples we are visiting though we are not expecting any changes at this time. We will provide the final itinerary with the arrival/departure times at each of this locations to all participants few days before the Oct 7, 2023.
