Mulnayak: White-colored idol of Bhagawan Adishvar in the
is in the Derasar street in the Shiroshi town.
Historicity: Maharao Shivabhans son Shesmalji Chauhan
settled this town in the year 1482 of the Vikram era. This temple was built still earlier.
This is called the temple of Achalagachchha. It was the result of excellent and pure
thoughts that this temple was built in a forest where even the town was not settled. In
course of years, the place was changed into a city. It is still unravished. All this is
the influence of good thoughts. Jagadguru Hirvijaysursvarji got here the rank of an
Acharya. Gold mohurs were distributed on this auspicious occasion of the great festival.
This is noteworthy. The idol of the four-mouthed Bhagawan Adishvar in the four-storeyed
temple was installed in the year 1634 of the Vikra era. Its art etc. are very distinct
even today. Many great Acharyas did many religious activities here on this land. From the
door of the open square of the sanctuary behind the temple of Bhagawan Adishvar to the
palace, there is a subterranean passage. Perhaps, it was made for the King and the queens
to come to the temple. They had boundless faith in religion.
Other Temples: At present, there are nineteen temples beside ancient temple of Bhagawan
Works of art and Sculpture: From the foot of the hill the scene of a group of
temple peaks looks very beautiful and attractive. Extra ordinary art is seen in every
temple. The arched gates and the domes are really matchless specimens of art. The idol of
Saraswatidevi installed in the Pausadhashalas near the Achalgachchha temple is very
beautiful. In the temple of 52 idols, the idol of Mulnayak Bhagawan Adinath is studded
with gems. The sculpture is very beautiful. One hundred ancient idols of five metals are
very delightful. The sculpture of arched-gates, pillars and the pendal in the four-mouthed
temple is sighty.
