   Abhinandannath was born in the Ikshvaku clan at Ayodhya. His father Sanvar was the king of Ayodhya and his mother was queen Shidhrtha Devi. He born on Magh shukla 12. It is said that the noble and purified soul of Mahabal the king of Ratnasanchay /Mangalavati town has descended into the womb of queen Siddharth, wife of king Samvar of Ayodhya. As a result of the simplicity of attitude inherited from the earlier birth, the soul in the womb of the queen had a soothing and pacifying influence on the outer world. The people of the kingdom were suddenly filled with the feelings of humility and fraternity. The augurs and other scholars confirmed that as the aura of a pious soul influences all the people around, the effusion of politeness was caused by the soul in the womb.
The queen gave birth to the future Tirthankar and the king named his son as Abhinandan (greeting). As time passed Abhinandan lead normal mundane life with least indulgence. He ascended the throne when his father became an ascetic. After a long and peaceful  reign, he became an ascetic and indulged in rigorous penance and lofty spiritual  practices. He attained omniscience on the fourteenth day of the dark half of the month of Paush. For a long period Bhagavan Abhinandan moved around to show the right path to millions of beings. He attained Nirvana at Sammedshikharji on Basiak Sukla 6.
