in April 2004, Shri Nirmal Kumar Ji Sethi, President of All India Digamber Jain Mahasabha, visited Bangkok and he inspired us to form Digamber Jains’ Association and construct a Jinalay for Digamber Jains living in Bangkok. At that time there were only 1215 known Digamber Jain families. These members then got together & started search for other Digamber Jains living in Bangkok and soon the no. increased to 60-70 families. Presently over 100 families living in Bangkok and vicinity have registered their names.
Few members then volunteered to form Digamber Jain Federation. One of the committee members brought a Pratishthit Shri 1008 Mahavir’s Panchdhatu Jin Bimb (which is now our Mulnayak Ji) from Kishangarh while one of the other committee members graciously offered a room in his office in Bangkok Gems and Jewelry Tower in Suriwong area for the sthapana of this Shri 1008 Mahavir’s Jin Bimb. This was the auspicious beginning for Digamber Jains as now they had their own place of worship.
