believed to belong to the times of King Shripal. At some time in the past,
this tirth was perhaps a part of the Soparak city. The city of Sopalak
later on became known by the name Nalasopara. The virtuous and beautiful
daughter of the king of this city was once bitten by a snake. By virtue of
propitiation of the navpada King Shripal saved her from death and married
her. The idol of Bhagawan appeared here from the lake of Nalasopara. It is
very ancient. It was installed in the present temple renovated on the
auspicious second day of the dark half of the month of Magh in the year
1892 of the vikram era. It is said that when his ship was lost in the sea,
Sheth Motisha took a vow that he would build a temple at the place where
his ship would be found. Thus this temple was built according to the vow
of Motisha Sheth and this extremely splendid idol was installed. in it.
At present, there is no other temple. But in this temple, there are old
idols of Suparshvanath and Neminath.
