Mulnayak: Nearly 105 cms. high, white - colored idol of Bhagawan Adishvar in the Padmasana, posture.

Tirth: It is at the foot of hills outside the Delvada village.

Historicity: There is a mention of renovation of the temple and reinstallation of the image in the year 1469 of the Vikram era. It shows only the antiquity of the place. In ancient times, this tirth was known as Devkapatak. It was a large city. Its last renovation was accomplished in the year 1954 of the Vikram era. It is difficult to see else where such as lovely idol of Bhagwan Adinath. Shetrunjayavatar and Girnaravatar are installed on two hills here. There was a subterranean passage from here to Nagda. This tirth belongs to the group of five tirths of Mavad.

Other Temples: There are three other temples and they belong to the fifteenth century.

Works of art and Sculpture: The sculpture of this place reminds one of Abu, Ranakpur and Kumbhariaji. The craftsmanship of the peaks, domes, pillars etc. of the temples is really wonderful. Seeing the idol of the Mulnayak, one thinks as if Bhagawan is actually sitting there. It seems that this ancient idol is made only today. The foot - idols of Bhagawan Adinath, the idols of draupadi, kunti and pandavas are ancient idols of artistry beyond description. There are large ancient idols in the cellar.

Guidelines: Udaipur, the nearest railway station of is 26 kilometers away and Khemli is 13 kilometers away. Bus service and taxi service are available. There are boarding and lodging provisions.

Trust: Shri Jain Svetambar Mahashabha, Delwada, Dist. : Udaipur, Rajasthan State, India.
