Mulnayak: White-colored idol of Bhagawan Mahavir Swami in the Padmasana posture.
It is in the locality of temple in the Pindvada village.

Historicity: There is a mention that the ancient name of this tirth was Pindarvatak. The inscription on the wall states that this temple was renovated by Kunvarpal, the father of Dharana Shah, the renovator of the Ranakpur temple and Kumarpalís advisor Limba on the first day of the bright half of the month of Fagan in the year 1465 of the Vikram era. On an idol in this temple, He is an inscription of the year 1229 on the Vikram era. It is, therefore, believed that this temple belongs to a period of time earlier than the twelfth century of the vikram era. These are extraordinary artistic ancient metal idols brought here from Vasantgadh after its destruction. On one of the idols, there is a carved inscription of the year 744 of the Vikram era. A flag is hoisted every year on the sixth day of the bright half of the month of Vaishakh.

Other Temples: There are four other temples at present.

Works of art and Sculpture: The structure of the temple is very beautiful. The artistry of ancient metal idols of the Gupta Age is matchless and delightful. It is difficult to see such idols elsewhere. The two splendid metal idols in the Kayotsarga posture on the pendal in the depth of the temple are beautiful beyond description Devotees and pilgrims should not miss to see these idols.

Guidelines: Shirohi road, the nearest railway station is at a distance of only one kilometer. Bus service and private vehicles are available. In front of the station, there is a dharmashala in the village. There are good boarding facilities.
