Tejalapura (तेजलपुर).—Tejapāla (minister of the king of Gurjara) constructed a beautiful town called Tejalapura in Girināra (Girnar) and built the temple of Pārśvanātha named Āsarājavihāra after the name of his father. He also excavated a beautiful lake known as Kumārasara after the name of his mother. On the east of Tejalapura a fort called Ugrasenagaḍ and a Jina temple were sanctified by Yugādinātha.

Jainism is an Indian religion of Dharma whose doctrine revolves around harmlessness (ahimsa) towards every living being. The two major branches (Digambara and Svetambara) of Jainism stimulate self-control (or, shramana, ‘self-reliance’) and spiritual development through a path of peace for the soul to progess to the ultimate goal.

Tejalapura (तेजलपुर) refers to Jirnadurga (modern Junagadh).—Tejapala, a minister in Vaghela court who is known along with his brother Vastupala, constructed the stepwell for the benefit of travellers. It is built in the first half of the 13th century CE, probably between 1230 and 1240. The construction of the stepwell between Tejalapura or Jirnadurga (modern Junagadh) and Vamanasthali (modern Vanthali) is mentioned in the Jinaharsha's Vastupala-Charita (dated Vikram Samvat 1497 or 1441 CE), a biography of Vastupala.Source: OpenEdition books: Vividhatīrthakalpaḥ (History)
Tejalapura (तेजलपुर) was built by Tejaḥpāla: a minister of King Vāghela Vīradhavala, as is mentioned in the Vividhatīrthakalpa by Jinaprabhasūri (13th century A.D.): an ancient text devoted to various Jaina holy places (tīrthas).—Accordingly, “This minister built the city of Tejalapura, built a temple called Āsarāyavihāra, and built a pond called Kumarasara. [...] He summoned the community to Ujjayaṃta. [...] He built a temple dedicated to Nemi”.
