Puṣpadanta was born to King Sugriva and Queen Rama at Kakandi (modern Khukhundoo, Deoria, Uttar Pradesh) to the Ikshvaku dynasty.[1] His birth date was the fifth day of the Margshrsha Krishna month of the Vikram Samvat. Puṣpadanta was the ninth Tirthankara who re-established the four-part sangha in the tradition started by Rishabhanatha. Pushpadanta is associated with Alligator emblem, Malli tree, Ajita Yaksha and Mahakali (Dig.) & Sutaraka (Svet.) Yakshi.[2]
