Tagarapura (तगरपुर) was known as Terāpura, and the Jaina caves here were well-known in earlier times. Both Hariṣeṇa and Kanakāmara have mentioned the Pārśva Tīrtha of this place. Tagarā is mentioned in the Seventy century Churṇi on the Uttarādhyana and the Vyavahārabhāshya also proves its association with Jainism. It seems that in earlier times, it was a Śvetāmbara stronghold, and only at a later period, it came under the influence of the Digambaras.
