Mulnayak: 76 cms. high, black - colored idol of Bhagawan Neminath in the Padmasana posture.

Tirth: It is in the central part of the village, Bhorol.

Historicity: A number of idols and relics have been found here from the ground. This proves the antiquity of this place. There is a reference that outside the city, a splendid temple with 1444 pillars and 72 devkulikas (Small temples) and also a large well with steps leading downwards, were built at the expense of one and a quarter crores of rupees. Even today, this stepped well is present here in its old shape. In the temple of Higharajamata, there is a broken idol of Ambikamata and on its girdle there is a mention of the second day of the bright half of the month of Jeth in the year 1261 of the Vikram era. The idol of Neminath is  marvelous. On the fifteenth day of the months of Kartak and Magashar, a fair is held here every year.

Other Temples: At present there is no other temple.

Works of art and Sculpture: Since this is an ancient place of prosperity, a number of artistic relics are found from the ground. This idol of Bhagawan Neminath is artistic and impressive. Since all the idols in this belong to the times of king Samprati, they are beautiful, unbroken and worth seeing.

Guidelines: The nearest railway stations from here, Deesa and Bhildi are respectively 60 and 40 kilometers away. Taxis and buses are available for travel. There is some part of rough and sandy road. Tharad, the village nearby, is 23 kilometers away. There is a small dharmashala and a bhojanshala.

Trust: Shri Neminath Bhagawan Jain Pedhi, Bhorol, Talukao Tharad, Dist. Banaskantha, Gujarat State, India.
