Nearly 15 cms long, white-colored foot-idol of Bhagawan Mahavir Swami.
It is near the Barakar village on the bank of the river Barakar.
The present day Barker river was the Rujubaluka river of the ancient
times. It is believed that this great tirth was Rujuvaluka. On the farm of
the farmer Shyamak on the bank of this river under a shali tree at an
auspicious time of Vijay Muhurta on the tenth day of the bright half of
the month of Vaishakh Bhagawan Mahavir attained omniscience. Thus, this is
a very sacred and holy place of Bhagawan Mahavir Swami’s attainment of
Omniscience. Rev sadhus of the sixteenth, the seventeenth, and the
eighteenth centuries described this tirth in their tirthmalas. Every
particle of this place is purified and sanctified by twelve years long
severe penance and attainment of omniscience of Bhagawan Mahavir Swami,
the twenty- fourth Tirthankara. The grandeur of this place is matchless
and beyond description.
At present, there are no other temples.
