Mulnayak: 43 cms. high with the hood, white-colored idol of Bhagawan Ashapuran Parshvanath in the Padmasana posture.
It is in the Nun village.

Historicity: This is one of the ancient tirths of the forgotten past of splendid temples in many desolate villages of Rajasthan. This was a prosperous city. It is believed that this temple was built about the year 1100 of the Vikra era. It was renovated many times during the period of prosperity of this city. The other villages around are now deserted. There is no population of Jains. Bhagawan fulfills all wishes of pilgrims. The idol in the Nun temple is called ‘Asapuran Parshvanath’.

Other Temples: There is no other temple.

Works of art and Sculpture: This temple is very ancient. It is the only momento of the forgotten past. If arrangements are made for pilgrimages to these unknown and impressive tirths and if fairs are held there, they can be brought to light and made famous.

Guidelines: The nearest railway station of Shirohi Road is at a distance of 56 kilometers. Bus services and private vehicles are available. There are no boarding and lodging provisions. Since there is no population of Jains, Shri Kalindra Jain Sangha manages this tirth.

Trust: Ashapuran Parshvanath Svetambar Jain Tirth, ‘Nun’, Via - Kalindri, Dist : Shirohi, State : Rajasthan, India.
