A poor old lady with an intension of constructing a Jain temple used to grind cereals and save the money earned in that. After a certain period of time when sufficient amount of money was collected unfortunately all here money was stolen. But the lady wasn’t disappointed by this incident and she again began to collect the money. After some days it was seen that all the stolen money was found in her house and she began to build the temple. But due to the shortage of amount the kalasha could not be installed, she installed her stone grinders as the kalasha of the temple.
