Mangi-Tungi is only 100 km away from Dhule, a well known city and district place in North Maharashtra (Khandesh).

In February 2016, one world's tallest Jain statue with height 108 feet (113 feet including pedestal) was inaugurated. The consecration was attended by CM Devendra Fadnavis and many visionaries of Indian Government. Named as The Statue of Ahimsa, the idol is an exceptional piece of architecture and has become a pilgrim for Jains all across the world.

The foundation stone for this project was laid in 1996 under the inspiration of Gyanmati Mataji, a Jain monk. The motivation was given by Chandanamati Mataji. It was under their guidance that President Ravindrakirti Swamiji and Chief Secretary Dr. Pannalalji Papdiwal worked for 20 years to create this religious marvel.
