Mulnayak: Nearly 85 cms. high, black - colored idol of Bhagawan Neminath in the Padmasana posture.

Tirth: It is in the center of the Paroli Village.

Historicity: In the year 1540 of the Vikram era, in the times of Sultan Mohammed Begdo, this idol was in the village of Dhaneshvar. But from fear of invasion, the devotees kept it safeguarded in a river. After many years, a Shravak of the Chhani village conducted a search under divine indication and the God’s idol appeared. Shravakas of different villages insisted on taking the idol to their own village. It was, therefore, decided that the idol should be seated on a bullock - cart, the bullock - cart should be set moving and a Jain temple should be built where the bullock cart stopped. It stopped at the village paroli. There the sangha built a splendid temple and got the idol formally installed there. This is a very miraculous idol. Devotees call the idol ‘ the true God Neminath’.

Other Temples: There is no other temple.

Works of art and Sculpture: The idol of Bhagawan Neminath, the true God, is very beautiful and the artistry is ancient and eye - catching.

Guidelines: This sacred place is at a distance of only 16 kilometers from Godhara. Buses and taxis are available vehicles. Dharmashalas and Bhojanashalas are there near the temple.
