It is on a hill in the Pabhosa Village on the bank of the Yamuna river.
This idol is believed to belong to the times preceding a hundred years of
A.D., According to the Digambar belief, this is the holy land of diksa and
attainment of omniscience of Padmaprbh Swami, the Sixth Tirthankara. This
firth was a garden of the Kaushambi City. According to the indication in a
dream of the pujari, this idol was installed as Mulnayak in the temple.
This Pabhosa tirth is regarded to be extremely holy. This is also regarded
as an ‘Atishay Kshetra’. The color of the idol goes on changing from
morning to evening. Sometimes at night, saffron drops come showering. A
fair is held here on the fifteenth day of the bright half of the month of
Chaitra every year.
Recently, a new temple with three pinnacles is set up.

the Kings of the Mit dynasty, more than a hundred years older than the
Christian era. Words fail to describe the artistic beauty of the idol.

is unbroken. While digging around here, ancient idols etc. are found and
they prove the antiquity of the place.
