Jain community fondly celebrates Paryushan Parv, which is considered to be a festival of forgiveness. This is one of the significant festivals of Jains. It started on 24th August from Shwetambar Jains and will be from 31st August for Digambar Jains. The main objective behind celebrating Paryushan Parv is to attain salvation for the soul. People belonging to the Jain community follow the path of enlightenment by observing fasts and doing meditation and prayers.
