About Kshetra :

No. Of Temple In Tirthkshetra : 04
Hill in tirth kshetra   : No
 At present there are four Jain temples in the village Shirpur,  the Atishay kshatra Shri Antariksh Parshvanath Basti Mandir, the Pavali Digamoari Mandir, the Parshvanath Shvetambar Mandir and the Chintamani Parshvanath Digambari Mandir. 
   The temple of Shri Antariksha Parshvanath which is also known as the Basti Mandir being in the middle of the Shirpur village. This temple is said to have been rebuild about 250 years ago. The lnam Record about this temple which was registered in 1867 corroborates the above mentioned fact. The temple is believed to have been rebuilt by Onkaniasji Shravaji of Knarngaon.

History:   The story told about this temple is that two Jain demons ailed Khara and Dushana made the image of cowdung and sand and used to worship it. They hid it in a pit beside a river on the side of a hill near Werul (Ellora) a village near Aurangabad in the then Nizam's Dominions. Long afterwards Ila or Ilaka Raja of Ellichpur happened 
to pass by the spot and to see a little pool of water, no larger than might be contained in a cow's hoof-mark. He suffered terribly from white leprosy, but on applying this water to his body was immediately cured. He was a Jain, and every night his queen had been accustomed to take the germs of the disease from his body and, not being allowed to kill them, put them in a tin ease till the morning, when they were replaced. She now asked how he had been cured, and went with him to the spot, where she prayed to the unseen god to manifest himself. That night the image appeared to her in a dream and directed that it should be dug up and conveyed in a cart to Ellichpur but it warned her that the king, who was to drive the cart himself must on no account look back. In fact he looked back near Shirpur and the image remained suspended in the air. The king built over it the temple of Pavali- a Hemadpanti building having neither 
arch nor mortar. Presently the god expressed disapproval of this and directed that another temple should be built at the cost of a panch, and the present temple was built accordingly.

he principal object of worship, the idol of Antariksha Parshvanaith appears to be made of black stone of the local variety. The idol appears to be a fine specimen of sculpture and is about three and a half feet high. It is in a typical meditative posture which is known as dhyanastha ardha-padmasana. There is a hood of the cobra on the top of the idol. Jain devotees believe that the idol was in a floating position in the past and has come to rest on ground at only one point subsequently. However, a plausible explanation of its position as it appears to the human eye is that the idol is supported on the base at one point and is balanced in such a way that its entire weight is supported at that point. The principal interest about the same is that except for one point the entire idol is floating, and is hence called antariksha.
