Mulnayak: 76 cms. high, black - colored idol of Bhagawan
Neminath in the Padmasana posture.
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.
The nearest railway stations from here, Deesa and Bhildi are respectively
