Being inspired by Shri Punya Tilaksurishwarji, the Acharya of Vallabhi branch of Anchalgatchh, Shrimal Seth Shri Punja Shah (Katyayan gotra) has erected a temple having 1444 pillars & 72 Devkulika and a pond. It is stated that he invested about 1.25 crore of Rupees for this holy purpose. The pond is still seen in very poor condition. A damaged idol of Shri Ambika Devi and a parikar is present near the pond. It is mentioned on the parikar that the idol of Shri Neminath Bhagwan was established by Shri Jayprabhsuriji on Jyeshtha Shukla 2 of VS 1261.
