Mulnayak: Nearly 60 cms high, white-coloured, parikarayukta
idol of Bhagawan Mahavir Swami in the Padmasana posture.
Tirth: It is outside the village, Nana Bhadavpur.
Historicity: Once upon a time, this was a vast city. This
splendid idol which was installed in the Vesana village on the seventh day of the bright
half of the month of Magasar in the year 813 of the Vikram era, was reinstalled here in
the year 1233 of the vikram era. This idol is very miraculous. It is said that when people
in power invaded the village Vesana, Sanghvi Palji, a native of the village took away the
idol in a bullock-cart and the bullock-cart stopped at Bhandva. In a dream Sanghvi got a
hint to build a temple and install an idol. Accordingly the idol was installed on the
auspicious fifth day of the bright half of the month of Magh in the year 1233 of the
Vikram era. Even today, this place is regarded as a miraculous place. Thousands of Jains
and non-Jains come here to have their wishes fulfilled. A fair is held here every year
from the thirteenth day to the fifteenth day of the bright half of the month of
and on the full-moon day of the month of Kartak.
Other Temples: At present, there is no other temple.
Works of art and Sculpture: The artistic skill of God's idol in this ancient
temple of fifty-two idols in a lonely forest, is very attractive.
