    History – According to history when the parents of king Vastupal died, Vastupal decided to go on a pilgrimage to Siddhachalji. Before starting his pilgrimage he decided to burry his wealth. When he went to bury his wealth under a tree, he saw a large copper vessel, full of wealth. At this instance Anupamadevi said to Vastupal that “if you want to go to a low state of life then, bury the wealth under the ground or if you want to go to a high state of life, then beautify the hills with temples”. Hence Vastupal constructed the temples at Girinar, delwada and Bhujpur. At the entrance of the village, on the wall of the temple, there is a painting of Vastupal Tejpal. It tells us about the antiquity and splendor of the temple. The temple is beautifully constructed. There is a two-storied temple dedicated to Bhagawan Mahavir Swami and in the cellar, there is an idol of Bhagawan Kesariyaji.
