Mulnayak: Black-colored idol of Bhagawan Parshvanath in the Kayotsarga posture.
It is at the foot of the hills in the center of the lake outside the village of Varang.
This temple is known as Jalmandir of southern regions. In the year 1711 of the Yikra era, Muni Shilvijay came here on a pilgrimage. In the past, this was a rich and prosperous city. On the hills here, there were sixty temples. This is an ancient tirth in Karnatak. At present, hundreds of people come here on Fridays for worship. They get absorbed in worship in order to fulfill their wishes.

Other Temples: At present, besides Jalmandir, there are two other temples.
