Mulnayak: Nearly 120 cms. high, white - colored idol of Bhagawan Mahavir Swami in the Padmasana Posture.

Tirth: It is at a distance of 5 Kilometers from the Dhanerav village.

Historicity: There is no mention of antiquity of this temple. But it is regarded to be very ancient. The last renovation was accomplished in the year 2022 vikram era and the idol was installed. Once the king of Udaipur came here on a pilgrimage. While he was going to make mark of pigment on forehead, he saw a mustache hair in the bowl of saffron and in fun he said to the worshipper in the temple, "It seems that God has mustaches". And the worshipper who was devoted to God said, "Yes, God can assume various forms as He wishes." The obstinate king said, "I will stay here for three days. I want to see Mahavir with mustaches." Gratified with the worship of the devoted worshipper, Mahavir with mustaches, appeared to the king. Therefore, this idol came to be called Muchhala Mahavir. Even today many miraculous events happen here. A fair is held here every year on the thirteenth day of the month of Chaitra. This tirth belongs to the group of the five Godval tirths.

Other Temples: At present, there is no other temple.

Works of art and Sculpture: This is a delightful temple surrounded by hills. It is ancient and beautiful. The open squares, pillars and artistic models in the round passage are delightful.
