Historicity: This is a very ancient Tirth. Delighted with the
worship of Hemchandracharya, Saraswatidevi made direct appearance in the temple. On
some metal idols, there are inscriptions of the eleventh and the thirteenth centuries. The
workmanship of the idol shows that it is very ancient. All the fifty-two idols of this
temple seem to belong to the times of King Samprati. In the temple, there are also
beautiful idols of some Acharyas, too. Here the idol of Saraswatidevi is very beautiful
and miraculous. This goddess makes idol miracles even today. Jains as well as non-Jains
come here and have their wishes fulfilled. This tirtha belongs to the Nani Marwad group of
five tirths. This is the birth-place of the great poet Kalidas.
Other Temples: At present, there is no other temple.
Works of art and Sculpture: The craftsmanship of the fifty two temples is very
delightful. All the idols are beautiful and fascinating. The idol of the Saraswatidevi is
very ancient and awe-inpiring . It is difficult to see it elsewhere.
