It is in the center of the Bhopalsagar town.
Historicity: There is a
reference that in this ancient temple, the idol of Bhagawan Parshvanath
was installed by Acharya Yashobhadrasurisvarji in the year 1029 of the
Vikram era. On the idols on the side of the round passage, there are
inscriptions of the years 1303, 1341 and 1496 of the Vikram era. There is
a figure of a mosque on the open square. It is said that when King Akbar
came here, this figure was erected so that the Muslim invaders may not
destroy this beautiful miraculous temple. In the Vikram era 1340 when
Jhajhan Shah who was leading the Sangha to Mt. Shetrujaya, came here, he
began the renovation of the Parshvanath temple. Perhaps, this idol was
installed then. The present renovation was accomplished in the year 2033
of the Vikram era. The present idol is very miraculous and removes
calamities. A fair is held here every year on the tenth day of the bright
half of the month of Magsar.
