Mahavir Jayanti in the Year 2024 will be Celebrated on Sunday, 21 April 2024

Mahavir Jayanti is observed by Jains as the birth anniversary of sage Mahavir. Mahavir, also known as Vardhamana, established core tenets of Jainism. Mahavir was the 24th and the last Jain sage. 

Mahavir was born during 599 B.C. and died in 527 B.C. at the age of 72. Mahavir was born at Kundalagrama which is situated under the Vaishali district in Bihar.

Shrines and temples are decorated with flags for the occasion, and on the day of the festival, the idol of the tirthankar is given a ritual bath before being taken out, ensconced in a cradle, in a grand procession. The custom of donating money, food, and clothing to the poor is also an important aspect of celebrating Mahavir Jayanti. 

In addition, Jain organizations (in some cases, even individuals) arrange for free food and drink for all passersby. Important Jain shrines such as Sri Mahavirji in Rajasthan; Girnar and Palitana in Gujarat; Parasnath Temple (Kolkata) and Pawapuri in Bihar host major celebrations to mark Mahavir Jayanti.
