  History

 The idol of Bhagavan Mahavira is very ancient idol of the nineteenth century found inside a nearby hill is serene, and beautiful. The appearing of this idol of Bhagavan Mahavira 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.

Impressed extremely by the idol, the kings of Jaipur donate the expenses of the lamp, incense and other material for worshipping.
