Parshvanath is very ancient. Formely, the idol of Mulnayak was in the temple in the
one-storeyed residential place in the orchard of Shri Maganlal Karamchand. Many times
musical notes were heard here at night. Shri Anandji Kalyanji Trust brought this idol for
hospitality to the temple of Bhagwan Dharmanath in Panjarapole in the year 2015 of the
Vikram era. it was to be taken to C.N.Vidhlaya. But since the residents of this place
raised an objection, Shri Anandji Kalyanji Trust built this new temple and on the first
day of the dark half of the month of Vaishak in the year 2023 of the Vikram era, this idol
was installed under the auspicies of Acharya Udhaysuri Maharaj Saheb and Nandansuri
Maharaj Saheb. In this temple, there are idols of Bhagwan Adishwar, Bhagwan Shantinath,
Parshva Yaksh and Padmavatidevi.
