Where do Jains go after death?
For Jains body and soul are different things: the body is just an inanimate container – the conscious being is the jiva. After each bodily death, the jiva is reborn into a different body to live another life, until it achieves liberation.
Both Arihants and Siddhas are considered Gods of Jain religion. Arihats are perfect human beings and preach the Jain religion to the people after attaining keval_jnan. After death they become Siddhas. All Siddhas are perfected souls, living forever in a blissful state in Moksha.
