Mulnayak: Nearly 76 cms. high, yellow - colored idol of
Bhagawan Navalakha Parshvanath in the Padmasana posture.
Tirth: It is in the center of the village Div, settled in
the midst of the sea.
This is one of the group of
the fine Ajahara Sacred places in Saurashtra. In ancient times, many sharvakas lived here.
This village is mentioned in the Kalpasutra. It is, therefore, no doubt a very ancient
place. After pilgrimaging to Shatrunjaya, Hirvijaysurishvraji came here for his monsoon
sojourn. The crown, the garland, the angi (dress and ornaments) of Gods Idol were
each made at the cost of nine lakhs of rupees. On account of the artistic beauty and
antiquity of the idol, God came to be known as Navalkha Parshvanath.
Other Temples: Near this original temple, there are two other temples.
Works of art and Sculpture: Gods idol is impressive, pleasing and
extraordinary. The natural beauty of this land surrounded by sea, is matchless.
