ChampapurI is the only ‘Panch Kalyanaka Kshetra’ in the world. It is related to Panch Kalyanaka: – “(i) Garbha, (ii) Janma, (iii) Tapa, (iv) Gyan and (v) Moksha” of 12th Teerthankar Bhagwan Vasupoojya (The first ascetic saint). The red colored Padmasana idol of Bhagwan Vasupoojya Swami present in centre of main altar is quite attractive and miraculous. The color of this idol is comparable to the actual complexion of Bhagwan Vasupoojya.
