    History – A story say that nobody could visit it without paying the tax of  one gold coin (muhar) to the village chief. People, therefore, called the idol by the name, Muhari Parshvanath. A few years ago, a monk saw in a dream that this idol was buried under a ruined house on the Shamalaji hill. According to the dream, the Sangha of the four village of Tintoi. Dadhaliya, Modasa and Sarodi, met together, went to the idol, put it on a bullock-cart. Since the bullock-cart stopped at Tintoi village, a temple was built there and it was formally installed on the fifth day of the bright half of the month of Vaishakh in the year 1828 of the Vikram era. The mention of Muhra Parshvanath in the Jagachintamani Chaitayavandan Sutra, is a reliable  proof of the antiquity of this place.
