Historicity: Found from a hollow on the hill near the temple,
this very ancient idol of the nineteenth century, is serene, and beautiful. The appearing
of this idol of Mahavir is related to a miracle. A tanners cow did not give milk. On
looking for the reason, it was found that the cow used to go and stand on a hill and all
her milk oozed out. The tanner had various doubts but he could not know the reason. At
last when digging was done on the hill, an idol appeared. Hearing that an idol had
appeared, worshippers enthusiastically came rushing from far and wide. By merely bowing
their head to the idol, people had their wishes fulfilled. This splendid temple was,
therefore, built and the idol was installed. Even today, worshippers who bow their head to
the idol, feel boundless peace and their wishes are fulfilled. Impressed extremely by the
idol, the king of Jaipur donated the expenses of the lamp, incense and other material for
worshipping. The annual fair is held here from the thirteenth day of the bright half of
the month of Chaitra to the first day of the dark half of the month of Vaishakh.
Other Temples: There is no other temple but the foot-idols of prabhu are installed where
the idol appeared.
Works of art and Sculpture: The summits of the temple look, from a distance,
like a divine city. The building style of the temple is very fascinating.
