Jainsite was started in 2006 by the inspiration of Muni Shree Bhagyachandra Vijayji Maharaj Saheb. Jainsite was first started as a monthly magazine called “Jainism for Jivan Vikaas” where the articles were published every month in Hindi and English. These magazines were then sold to readers across India. Since couriering these magazines to readers in the US was not feasible, in 2008 Jainsite started a website so that Jains all over the world can access the information published here daily by which people are made aware of the happenings within the community.
