It is in the center of the Amizara village.
Historicity: The ancient name of the Amizara tirth was Kundanpur. Under the auspices of Acharya Vijaysomsurishvarji, this splendid and miraculous idol was installed in the year 1548 of the Vikram era. Since much nectar was oozing out of the idol of God, people began to know God by the name of Amizara Parshvanath. When the Kundanpur village came into the domain of King Sandhiya, impressed by the miracles of the idol, the king also named this village as Amizara.

Other Temples: There are no other temples.

Works of art and Sculpture: The nine-hooded idol is artistic and beautiful. It is very miraculous. Devotees come with great faith. God is splendid and lustrous.
