Mulnayak: Nearly 210 cms high,white-colored parikarayukta
idol of Bhagawan Mahavir Swami in the Padmasana posture.
Tirth: It is among the hills covered with beautiful trees
outside the Nandiya village.
Historicity: The ancient names of village were Nandigram and
Nandivardhanpur. There is a legend that this city was settled by Nandivardhan the elder
brother of Bhagawan Mahavir. This idol of Mahavir Swami is of his time. The stone
inscriptions of the years from 1130 to 1210 show the antiquity of this place. This tirth
seems to have been renovated many times. The idols of the times of Bhagawan Mahavir are
rare. They are called living God. Such beautiful and attractive idols are not found
elsewhere. There is a small temple on the hill near this temple. The idols of Gods
feet and a figure of snake are carved there. According to the belief of the worshippers,
it was here that Bhagawan gave sermons to the snake, Chandrakaushik. Dharana Shah and
Ratna Shah, who built the Ranakpur tirth were natives of this city.
Other Temples: There is no other temple.
Works of art and Sculpture: The artistry of all the fifty-two idols of this
temple is beautiful beyond description. It is difficult to see such bright and artistic
idols elsewhere. Their presence is directly felt. The natural beauty is fascinating and
the scene of the summits looks like a divine city.
