Sumatinath in the Padmasana posture.
Tirth: It is in the centre of the Matar village.
Historicity: This ancient and miraculous image of Bhagawan
Sumatinath was found from the open ground of the village Sudanja of the
Mahemadavad Taluka. It was formally installed in the splendid temple of Matar in the year
1854 of the Vikram era. Later on, it was renovated many times. When the idol was being
taken to Matar, there was a heavy flood on account of rains on the meeting place on the
Vatrak and the Rodhi rivers. All the devotees present there, decided to stand there. But
the cart-driver saw sand instead of water. Thus they crossed the river without any
difficulty, and the devotees made shouts of joy - True God. The idol is,
therefore, called Bhagawan Sacha Sumatinath. Many miracles happened here from
time to time.
Other Temples: At present, there are no other temples.
Works of art and Sculpture: This idol is very ancient and miraculous. In this
temple the idol of Bhagawan Suparshvanath which was found on a farm in the Kheda town is
also very ancient. The artistry of this temple looks sighty.
