Tirth: It is in the center of the Nana village.

Historicity: It is said that this tirth belongs to the times of Mahavir Swami. The inscriptions in the temple reveal that this was a prosperous city for centuries. The idol of the life time of Bhagawan Mahavir Swami was perhaps changed. An inscription of the year 1505 of the Vikram era is carved on it. This idol is very much awe-inspiring. This is the place of origin of the Nayak gachchha. The origin can be traced back to a period prior to the twelfth century. This tirth belongs to the Bamanvada group of five tirths.

Other Temples: There is no other temple.

Works of art and Sculpture: The artistry of Godís idol is very attractive. The idol is very cheerful. It is also very attractive. The artistic arch around the idol is sighty. The stone painting of the ancient Nandishvardvip with the inscription of the year 1274 of the Vikram era, is very artistic.
