Historical Details :

This place was well known as Bhadravati Nagari in history. As per the Tamrapatra recovered from this place, Jain shravak Shri Devchand took initiative for establishing teerth 23 years after prabhu Veer attained Nirvan (5 century before Vikram) and the idol of Bhagwan Parshwanath was established here by Kevali Shri Kapil Muni 45 years after Prabhu's Nirvan. Akhand Brahmachari Shri Vijay Seth and Vijaya Sethani have accepted Bhagwati Deeksha on that occasion. Shrimali brothers in VS 1134 and Seth Jhagadu Shah during VS 1313-14 have renovated this teerth. Once this city was destroyed in time-scale but the idol of Shri Parshwanath Bhagwan was lying safe with a saint. During VS 1682-88 Seth Vardhman Shah has renovated this teerth and established the idol of Shri Mahaveer Bhagwan in the main temple. That saint handed over Shri Parshwanath Bhagwan idol to Sangh, which is still present in the temple. Afterwards a Rajput has taken charge of the temple for some times. After that Jain shravak's again took the charge and renovated the temple in VS 1920. Smt. Meethabai w/o Seth Monsi Tejsi of Mandvi carried last renovatory work in VS 1939.
