Abhinandannatha or Abhinandan Swami was the fourth Tirthankara of the present age (Avasarpini).[3] Abhinandananātha is said to have lived for 50 lakh purva.[4] Abhinandannath was born to King Sanvara Raja and Queen Sidharta Rani at Ayodhya in the Ikshvaku clan. His birth date was the second day of the Magh shukla month of the Indian calendar.[3] According to Jain beliefs, he became a siddha, a liberated soul which has destroyed all of its Karma.
