Mulnayak: Nearly 118 cms high, black-colored idol of Bhagawan Vimalnath in the Padmasana posture.

Tirth: It is in the center of the Peda Amiram village.

Historicity: This is a renovated temple and the antiquity of the idol cannot be guessed. Its artistry reveals that it is more than a thousand years old. While digging the land, this idol was found from the hollow of the ground, nearly 85 years ago. Not knowing the importance of the idol, the villagers kept it in dirty place. As a result, there was a great agony in the village. When the villagers realized their mistake, they installed the idol at a proper place. Then the atmosphere of peace spread over the village. Even today this idol is regarded to be miraculous. This idol was installed in the new temple under inspiration of Munishri Nandavijayji on the auspicious eighth day of the month of Magh in the year 2021 of the Vikram era. On the fifteenth day of the bright half of the month of Chaitra, a fair is held here every year.

Other Temples: At present, there are no other temples.

Works of art and Sculpture: The ancientness of this ancient idol is not known but its building style of the temple is noteworthy. It is simple.

Guidelines: The nearest railway station of Bhimavaram is at a distance of 4 kilometers. Bus service and private vehicles are available. Boarding and lodging provisions are adequate.
Trust: Shri Vimalnath Jain Tirth, Peda Amiram - Gam, Bhimavaram - 534202, State: Andhra Pradesh, India.

Shri Aadishvar Bhagwan
