Mulnayak: Nearly 76 cms. high, black-colored idol of Bhagawan Adishvar in the Padmansana posture.
Also known as Kesariyaji, it is inside the large fort in the Bimbadod village.
Historicity: There is an inscription that his idol belongs to a period earlier than even the thirteenth century. The idol is so artistic that by merely seeing it, one can guess its antiquity. A fair is held here from the tenth day to the fifteenth day of the dark half of the month of Magasar. Thousands of devotees come here to worship God with devotion.

Other Temples: Near this temple, there are five temples.

Works of art and Sculpture: On seeing this ancient, beautiful and peaceful posture of God, the heart of pilgrims leaps up with a powerful impulse of devotion. It is difficult to find elsewhere such an idol made of sand. The scene of the pinnacles of the temple inside the fort is delightful to see. The idol is of special artistry.

Guidelines: The nearest railway station of Ratlam is at a distance of 8 kilometers from here. Bus service and private vehicles are available. Boarding and lodging provisions are there.
