Historicity: This tirth is known as Jiwit Swami. King Samprati
observed the vow of going on a pilgrimage. to five tirths four times every year. The tirth
of Bamanwada is among them. The Bamanvada tirth is among the many tirths renovaled by
Samant Shah in the year 821 of the Vikram era. This tirth was perhaps renovated many
times. Recently, it was renovated under the auspices of Acharya Sushilsurisvarji in the
year 2035 of the Vikram era. Bhagawan Mahavir suffered here the pain (Upasarga) of nails
pushed into his ears. There are foot-idols of Bhagawan here - Miracles happen here.
Faithful worshippers come here for fulfilment of their wishes. Pilgrims in a specially
large number come here on the eleventh day of the bright half of every month. The late
king of the Shirohi state gifted his plough-land and a stepped well for development of this
tirth and documented the contract on a copper plate. Agam Mandir, the temple of Agams
recently written in golden letters is under construction near the entrance of the temple.
Other Temples: Shri Samet Shikhar tirth is built on the hill. It is spectacular. The
harassment of pushing nails into the ears of Bhagawan Mahavir is shown here. The foot -
idols of Bhagawan Mahavir are here.
Works of art and Sculpture: The main gates, the idols of elephants and the
paintings of the 27 worldly existences (bhavas) of Bhagawan Mahavir are made of marble.
They are very beautiful. Pictures showing freedom from worldly attachment are vividly
delineated in the school for paintings. They are very expressive. Since this
tirth is in the forest, it is natural and beautiful.
