given in a dream, Sheth Amarasha of Kodinagar built here a temple in the year 326 of the
Vikram era. On the same day, Acharya Devsurishvarji also saw the same dream. Searching at
the indicated place, he found this idol. In course of time, this temple was renovated many
times. The last renovation and installation were accomplished in the year 2020 under the
auspices of Trilokvijayji. In many chaityaparipatis preceding the year 1851 of the Vikram
era, the name of Bhagawan Jirawala Parshvanath appears as Mulanayak. The reaosn why the
idol of Bhagawan Neminath was changed as Mulnayak, is not known. The grandear of Bhagawan
Jirawala Parshvanath is sung in Jain scriptures. In the beginning of auspicious occasions,
the name of Bhagawan Jiravala Parshvanath is remembered in the sacred mantra - Om
Hrim Shri Jiravala Parshvanathay Namah. In different small temples in this temple,
the idols of 108 names of Bhagawan Parshvanath are set. The Jirapalli gachchha is named
