Bhagwan Mahaveer’s miraculous idol discovered from the earth 400 years ago
from a hollow on the hill near the temple. The ancient idol of the nineteenth century, is serene, and beautiful. The appearing of this
idol of Mahavir is related to a miracle. A tanner’s cow did not give milk. On looking for the reason, it was found that the cow used to go and
stand on a hill and all her milk oozed out. The tanner had various doubts but the could not know the reason. At last when digging was done on the
hill, an idol appeared. Hearing that an idol had appeared, worshippers enthusiastically came rushing from far and wide. By merely bowing their
head to the idol, people had their wishes fulfilled. This splendid temple was, therefore, built and the idol was installed. Even today, worshippers
who bow their head to the idol, feel boundless peace and their wishes are fulfilled.
Impressed extremely by the idol, the kings of Jaipur donate the expenses of the lamp and other material for worshipping.
