In the depth of his splendid future, a Brahmin saw Parshvanath, the future Tirthankara as the architect of eternal happiness and in memory of his last two births, he got a beautiful idol of Parshvanathji made and got it installed in the present temple. Kurkateshvar Parshvanath is known in the popular language by the name, Kakadeshvar. This temple is recently renovated. A fair is held here every year on the tenth day of the bright half of the month of Bhadrapad.
