Black-coloured idol of Bhagawan Munisurvat Swami in the Padmasana posture.
It is in the Thana city near Mumbai.
This city is chiefly related to King Shripal (the meditator on Navapada).
Since this is a historical city, it is believed that there were many
temples in it. Happiness or unhappiness of man is caused by his karma,
Mayanasundari, the daughter of King Prajacal of Ujjain firmly believed
this. She had great faith in Navapada and propitiated it. She was married
to King Shripal who was suffering from leucoderma. By virtue of
propotiation of the Navapada, they pacified the disease and attained
prosperity. he attained many achievements, went to the Champa city and
established his rule. The rasa (circular dence accompanies by singing) of
King Shripal and Mayanasundari (the rasa of propitiating Navapadaji) is
famous even today. The idol was installed in this temple on the fifth day
of the bright half of the month of Magh in the year 2005 of the vikram
era. This temple is also called the Konkan Shetrunjaya Navapada temple.
In front of this chief temple, there is a temple of Bhagawan Adinath.
