In 1992 a native of Lunava, Shri Kanhayyalal Mukesh Sompura presented before the Acharya rough designs and sketches relating to the plan and architecture of the imaginary Ship Temple.


These were based on imaginations of the Acharya. After a lot of pondering, in-depth discussions and research the plan was finally approved.


In 1993 the inauguration of the Shri Shantinath temple, Shri Jin kantisagarSuri Guru temple was held.


Progressively on 9th May 1993 the "Shilanyas" was accomplished. Since then the construction of the temple is in full swing.


In order to speedup the task the Acharya held his 1997 "Chatur-Mas" in Mandavla itself. It happened in 1997.


In 1999 a ceremony called "Anjan-Shalakha" was organized in which 108 saints participated along with 40,000 devotees and followers.
