The statue has been installed at Vijay Vallabh Sadhana Kendra in Rajasthan.

The Prime Minister, after virtually inaugurating the statue, stated that Vijay Nityanand Surishwer Ji Maharaj used to say that the land of Gujarat gave two Vallabhs, i.e., Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel in the political field, and Jain Acharya Shree Vijay Vallabh Surishwer Ji Maharaj in the spiritual field.

He added that both the visionaries dedicated their lives for India’s unity and brotherhood, and that he is fortunate enough to inaugurate both the statues.

The saint, Shree Vijay Vallabh Surishwer Ji Maharaj, lived during 1870-1954, and worked selflessly to spread the message of Lord Mahavira. It is common knowledge that the saint also worked tirelessly for the welfare of masses, abolition of social evils, and spread of education.
