Naminatha was the twenty-first tirthankara of the present half time cycle, Avsarpini.[1] He was born to the King Vijay and Queen Vipra Rani of the Ikshvaku dynasty. Vijay Raja was the ruler of Mithila at that time.[1] Naminatha was born on the 8th day of Shravan Krishna of the lunisolar Jain calendar. Tirthankara Naminatha became a siddha, a liberated soul which has destroyed all of its karma.
