As per the inscription available, the temple of Shri Parhswanath Bahgwan, famous as "Lodhan Parshwanth" during those days, established in 18th century of VNS (13th of VS) by Shri Devchandracharya. Inscription on the platform of a damaged idol says that Mantri Vastupal Tejpal has established idol of Shri Neminath Bhagwan in the temple for the repentation of the sins committed by his brother Maldev and his son Punnsingh during 13th century of VS.
