Sacred water, amiya , oozes from the idol here. Hundreds of pilgrims visit this shrine on full-moon.


    This place is a spiritual place and very important for pilgrimage. But the 30 ft tall gate of this shrine,  not only attracts the pilgrims but also all the travelers. It bears an idol of Parshwanath. The idol of Parshwanath is held up by four pillars that depict the four essentials of spiritual atonement. These are- wisdom, introspection, good conduct, and penance. If you observe the idol attentively you can notice that the idol is worshiped by two elephants. Besides this, this place is really a peaceful place and the atmosphere of this place is also very refreshing.


    Situated on the bank of river Sheonath, amidst entrancing natural scenery, this shrine of the 23rd Teerthankar Lord Shri Parshwanath commemorates his holy visit to this region about 3000 years ago as a Shraman (A wandering mendicant dedicated to self-realization through self-sacrifice). Scattered Jain Sculptures, a large number of devotees, and a dilapidated ancient shrine along with Lord’s Foot – prints historically prove the Lord’s journey to this area. The mysterious manner of locating, finding, procuring, and then installing this ancient idol also proves categorically, his divine grace. This shrine is virtually an epic of Jain-devotional philosophy engraved on stones. A pilgrimage to this shrine inspires noble conduct, self-discipline, penance and equanimity.
