in the Padmasana posture.
It is in the Mundava village.
Historicity: The Mundava
village near the city of Sojat is an ancient tirth of Bhagawan Parshvanath.
There is a popular talk about the origin of this tirth. A Shravaka
observed a vow not to take meals before respectfully bowing his head to
God. He went to a Godís temple in a village at a distance of five miles.
Influenced by his vow and fidelity, the presiding deity gave him an
indication in dream and ordered him to find this idol under a particular
tree outside the villages. The presiding deity also instructed him to go
to the said place with a basket full of barley grains and leave it there
at night. All the barley grains turned into gold. With the gold he built
this splendid temple.
At present, there is no other temple.
