Nearly 135 cms. high, white - colored idol of Bhagawan Mahavir Swami in
the Padmasana posture.
It is in a lonely place outside the Korta Village.
Historicity: There is a
scriptural evidence to show that this temple was built on the fifth day of
the bright half of the month of Magha after a period of 70 years of
Mahavirís anniversary. There is a reference that under the instructions
of Jayvijaygani this tirth was revived in the year 1728 of the Vikram era
and since the old idol was lost, a new idol was installed. Since the new
idol was also broken, another new idol was installed under the auspices of
Vijayarajendrasuraji on the fifteenth day of the bright half of the month
of Vishakh in the year 1959 of the Vikram era. The ancient idol is there
even today on the open square. Once Korta was a big city. Even today, one
can have an idea of its prosperity.
Besides there is an ancient temple in the village. It has a very ancient
and beautiful idol.

are ancient arched gates and many artistic remains of the thirteenth
century. There is a museum under the temple.
