to the eighth century of the Vikram era. In the past, this was a very rich
and prosperous city and it seems that many Jain families lived in it. This

of art and Sculpture:
The artistry of this ancient idol of Parshvanath is of a special type,
beautiful and of a different style. The skilled artists have applied all
their skill to the making of this idol and have presented a specimen of
matchless, wonderful and distinct type of art. On seeing the idol, one
feels that Dharanendradev appears and holds the umbrella over Bhagawan
head. It is difficult to find elsewhere-such an extraordinary idol.
The nearest railway station of Gudivada is at a distance of 1.5
