General definition (in Jainism)

Source: Tessitori Collection I

Paripāṭī (परिपाटी) refers to a “tour” (of caityas—temples), according to the Arbudācalacaityaparipāṭī by Somadevasūri (dealing with Sacred places in Jain literature), which is included in the collection of manuscripts at the ‘Vincenzo Joppi’ library, collected by Luigi Pio Tessitori during his visit to Rajasthan between 1914 and 1919.—The Arbudācala-caityaparipāṭī represents a praise of the holiness of Abu as a Jain sacred place even called an avatāra of Śatruṃjaya to which it is equal (vs. 49), well deserves the designation caitya-paripāṭī ‘temple tour’ given in the colophon as, in agreement with this micro-genre, it deals in turn with the various Jain temples found at Abu.
