Speciality of Jain Teerth :

Born in a Bhandari gotra family, Shri Bhanaji was a Hakim of Jetaran Pargana coming under Gujarat State during the rein of king Gajasinghji. Once some jealous person of him have feded false information about Bhanaji. Listening to it, annoyed king called him to Jodhpur. Fearing Bhanaji started for Jodhpur and halted at Kaparda village. He kept a practice of eating only after taking darshan of prabhu idol. In search of a prabhu idol in Kaparda village, he came to know about an Yati in the upashraya having a prabhu idol. He visited the upashraya, have darshan and started for his halting place. The Yati asked the raeson of his visit to Jodhpur. Being conveyed about the raeson, he told Bhanaji that this tour is an probationary tour for him and he will overcome on it and at last king will appreciate him because he is innocence. Meanwhile at Jodhpur, after enquiring the king came to know that Bhanaji is innocence. All the informations were wrong and hence king greated him at his visit and awarded hin five hundred silver coins. He once again gave a visit to the Yati and told him all the happenings at Jodhpur in detail. In turn Yati suggested him to build a temple in Kaparda village. Willingly after accepting the task, Bhanaji put forward the bag full of the award maoney before Yatiji. Yati returned the bag after worshipping & sheilding it with the powerful Vasakshep of Vardhaman Vidya siddhi. He also blessed him for overcoming all the difficulties while building the temple. He warned him not to turn down that bag. Now, Bhanaji involved completly in fulfilling the task of building the temple. The foundation was laid under the supervision of his son Shri Narsingh. Bhanaji handed over the silver coin bag to his son. The work was nearing to its completion. At the last stage, curious Narsingh turned down the bag & magically all the coins fell down and the bag was emptied. Feeling guilty of his mistake, he informed Yatiji. Nothing could be done now, there was no choice and Yatiji directed him to call his father at Kaparda. Bhnaji came to Kaparda and found the temple in more or less in completed condition. Request were made to Acharya Shri Jinchandra Surishwarji for the establishment of temple & the moolnayak idol. Acharya Shri recommended the idol of Shri parshwanath prabhu, which was recovered during VS 1674 from the dense bush of Babul trees on the occsion of Janm Kalyanak Day of prabhu Veer i.e. Poush Krishna Dasami, as the Moolnayak of the temple & established it in the temple on Vaisakh Shukla Poornima of VS 1678 in presence of king Gajasinghji in a huge celebration. The main attraction of the temple is the Choumukhji prsent towards all the four sides of the shikhar on it. Annual gathering is organised on the eve of every Chaitra Shukla Panchami.
