Tirth: It is in the center of the Aur village on the river bank.

There are inscriptions of the year 1141 on the parikar of the idol of Ambikadevi and of the year 1242 of the Vikram era on other idols in the Kayotsarga posture on the pendal in the temple. It is believed that the installation of the idol of Bhagawan Adishvar at the time of renovation of the temple in the fifteenth century was posterior to the inscription of Bhagawan Mahavir Swami. This idol is very ancient. A flag is hoisted every year on the first day of the bright half of the month of Fagan.
