Mulnayak: Nearly 84 cms. high, white-colored idol of Bhagawan Muhari Parshvanath in the Padmasana posture.

Tirth: It is in the centre of the village of Tintoi.

Historicity: Regarding this sacred place, the legend goes that nobody could visit it without paying the tax. For paying a visit to this idol, one gold coin (muhar) was to be paid to the village chief. People, therefore, called the idol by the name, Muhari Parshvanath. A few years ago, a monk saw in a dream that this idol was buried under a ruined house on the Shamalaji hill. According to the dream, the Sanghas of the four village of Tintoi. Dadhaliya, Modasa and Sarodi, met together, went to the idol, seated it in a bullock-cart and returned with shouts of joy. Since the bullock-cart stopped at the centre of the Tintoi village, a splendid temple was built there and it was formally installed on the fifth day of the bright half of the month of Vaishakh in the year 1828 of the Vikram era. The text of Muhari Parshvanath in the Jagachintamani Chaitayavandan Sutra, is a sound proof of the antiquity of this temple.

Other Temples: There are no other temples.

Works of art and Sculpture: This miraculous ancient temple brightly shines with three summits, five open squares and two devkulikas. This idol has seven hoods.

Guidelines: One can go to Tintoi from the Shamalaji station which is on the Ahmedabad-Udaipur railway line. This sacred place is at a distance of 45 miles from the sacred place of Keshariya and very near to the sacred place of Nani Posina. Bus service and service of private vehicles are available. There are very good boarding and lodging provisions, Ayambilshala, upashraya and library. This is a place worth pilgrimaging.
