Nearly 30 cms.
high, white-colored idol of Ganadhar Gautam Swami in the Padmasana
It is between the main road of the Guniyaji village and the lake.
The temple belongs to the times of Bhagawan Mahavir. There is a mention
that Bhagawan Mahavir wandered about here many times and many times his
samvasarans were constructed here. It is believed that Gautam Swami, the
first Ganadhar of Bhagawan Mahavir attained omniscience here. There is a
mention that Bhagawan Mahavir stayed here many times in the Gunashil.
Chaitya ‘Guniyaji’ is a deformation of ‘Gunashil’. And that is the
reason why this tirth is important.
Besides this, there is at present a Digambar temple.
of art and Sculpture:
The Jalmandir constructed in the lake here reminds one of the Jalmandir in
Pavapura. The style of construction of this temple is quite distinct. The
outer arched gate of the temple is an excellent specimen of supreme
artistry. It is spectacular.
The nearest railway station of Navada is at a distance of 3 kilometers.
Guniyaji is a small village on the Patna-Ranchi main road. Bus service and
private vehicles are available. There is a Digambar dharmashala. There is
also a bhojanashala.
