This temple occupies a
unique place in the History of Jinalayas of Gujarat. This beautiful and
large Derasar consisting of 52 temples was built with great love and
devotion by Sheth Shri Hathisinghji with his own funds.
This temple reminds us of his piousness and generosity today. He wanted to
inaugurate this temple with a unique function but died before he could.
After his death, his pious and wise wife Shethani Harkorbai inagurated the
temple with a 21 day festival at the cost of lakhs of rupees. The
inaguration was done on Thursday, Posh Vad 11, Vikram Samvat.1903 at the
hands of Acharaya Shri ShantisagarSurishwarji.
