A huge celebration was organised at the time of the entry of Acharya Shri Hemchandracharya (famous as Kalikal Sarvagya), being on pravas from Bihar to other places, to this city in 13th VS century. Many Shravak's have invited him to their houses, which he fulfilled. A poor shravak have also invited him. Acharya Shri went to his house where he was offered an old Shaal. He accepted and continued his traveling. Acharya Shri put the same old Shaal on his shoulders while entering Patan city. King of Patan, great Kumarpal wanted to know the story behind that Shaal. Acharya Shri told him that it was offered by a poor shravak and if he (king) feels ashamed of it, he should uplift the poor of his empire. King Kumarpal took all measures for uplifting poor of his empire onwards, called on that poor shravak and offered ten thousand gold coins to him.
