Tirth: It is the Navalakha Road in the Gangani village.

Historicity: This very ancient tirth called Arjunpuri, later on came to be called Ganganak. In the year 1662 of the Vikram era, 65 idols appeared from a cellar of the Khokharnak temple near the dudhiya (milk - white ) lake. The dudhiya lake and the Khokhar temple are there even today. This temple was perhaps many times renovated in the fourteenth century and the sixteenth century. The last renovation was accomplished in the year 1982. In this temple, there is an idol of Bhagwan Adhishvar. It is made of all metals. An inscription of the year 937 is carved on it. This idol is very miraculous. Since this the temple of the idol installed by Emperor Chandragupta under the auspices of Bhadorabhahusuriji and the idol was installed by King Samprati under the auspices of Suhastisurishvarji, it has a special significance.

Other Temples: At present there is no other temple.
