Siddhachalji to soothe his grief. before going, he thought of burying his wealth under the
ground. As he went to bury his wealth under a tree, he saw there a large copper vessel,
full of wealth. Anupamadevi said to Vastupal "If you want to go to a low state of
life, bury the wealth under the ground and if you want to go to a high state of life,
beautify the hills with summits" As a result, the temples of Girnar and Delwada and
the tirth of Bhujpur came into existence.
