Nearly 27 cms high, black-colored idol of Bhagawan Girua Parshvanath in
the Padmasana posture
It is in the Amalner city.
Though immerged in activities of wealth and its acquisition, the man who
is devoted to religion cannot live without God. This tirth is an
illustration of it. It is believed that the idol in this temple is 500
years old. In this holy place, Shri Sangha built this temple of Girua
Parshvanath about the year 1920 of the Vikram era. Since it became old,
the idol was installed in this splendid pinnaccled temple, under
instruction of Acharya Vijayashodevji in the year 2007 of the Vikram era.
When the original hood was broken, this idol was adorned with the eleven
new hoods. The worship of Giruaji makes the worshippers religious. The
diksha festival of 26 diksa-aspirants celebrated here in this decade, is a
witness to it. Seventeen members of a single family accepted the path of
Shri Shamaliya Parshvanath is Mulnayak of this temple. But in the upper
storey of this temple, the idol of Girua Parshvanath is Mulnayak. Besides
this, there are three other temples and two temples in residential places.
