    History – This very ancient place came to light very recently. This idol of Bhagawan Parshwanatha was installed by King Pradeshi who was enlightened by Keshiswami. It was installed nearly thirty-sven years ago. This is what historians believe. This idol installed by Dharanendra and Padmavati and workshipped by gods and goddesses in devlok, goes on gaining prominence and grandeur day by day. The head of the idol of Gods looks beautiful with seven hoods on it and the coiled Nagraj is seen beneath this idol in the cross-legged posture. A shravak was getting a well dug. When it was dug to the depth 44 feet, it got filled up with milk. When the well was dug deeper in order to find out the secret of this miracle, entwined with living snakes, this idol of God was found. The non-Jain devotees and Bhuvansinh, the owner of the farm, handed over this idol to the Jain leaders. After this splendid temple was built, this idol was installed in it. When the foundation stone of this temple was being laid, a stream of milk shot forth in the presence of Sadhus. Many such miracles happen even today. Mental, physical and wordly troubles of devotees are removed by adoring, worshiping and praying to this idol. That is the reason why this impressive idol of God is called Uvasaggahar Parshvanath.Looking beautiful with the seven hoods, this wonderful and miraculous idol impresses the devotees and inspires them to have faith in God. It seems that Nagraj is coiled behind the idol. The scene is very vivid. This idol remained unknown for a long time and then this tirth came into light. Religious devotees are urnestly impatient to go to this tirth and worship God. A replica of the Shetrunjaya tirth, Shri Uvasuggahar Stotra Mandir, Shri Siddhachakra Mandir etc. are installed here in this splendid temple. This tirth is also famous for Manibhadravir’s miracles.
