Vahi

History – This seems to be a very prosperous city of the ancient times. This temple was built by King Samprati. This idol is distinct, ancient and very impressive. In this beautiful temple, there is a cellar, too. Since this tirth is in Vahinagar, the idol is called Vahi Parshvanath. The strange figure of tiger under the idol in a cross-legged posture is a unique of its kind. In the morning the idol of God looks like that of a child. At noon, it looks like that of a youth. In the evening, it looks like that of an old man. Many ancient stories of this place prove its antiquity.

How to Reach – This place is at a distance of 5 kilometers from the Pipaliya Mandi station and 16 kilometers from Mandasor. Bus service and private vehicles are available. In the village we can find two dharmashalas, a bhojanshala and an upashraya.

Main Deity – About 2 feet high, black coloured idol of Bhagawan Vahi Parshvanath in the Padmansana posture.
