Kanyanayana (कन्यानयन) (Northern Bagad) was a famous shvetambar tirtha probably situated near Delhi. Its history can be traced from 12th century, when an icon of Mahavira was installed in the existing Chaityalaya, of this place, in V.1233 by the Kharatara acharya Jinapati. That work includes this tirtha in Bagadadesha probably in eastern Rajasthan. The Mahavira temple of this place was quite popular with Kharatara acharyas. This tirtyha was destroyed by Muslims in V.S. 1385. Afterwards Jinaprabha repaired with the help of Muhammad Bin Tughlak.
