This unique chaumukhi (four-sided) pratimaji of Bhagwaan Parsvanath showing two Digamber and two Swetamber forms of pratimajis was conceived in the context of Shikharji at Siddhachalam.  It has come to represent Siddhachalam itself – a place where all who believe in the Arihants come together. The picture shown here is of the pratimaji in the Main Temple of Siddhachalam.
