Mahudi Jain Temple


This derasar, considered to be one of the most sacred Jain pilgrimages is situated in Mahudi, in the Mehsana District, and spreads over an area of 2 sq. km. In ancient times, the place was known as Madhumati. The idols and artistic remains recovered from the ground show that the history of this place is nearly 2000 years old, based on the inscriptions in Brahmi script. Acharyadev Buddhisagar Surisvarji was inspired in a dream to install the idol of Ghantakarna Mahavir Dev in 1923 AD. This idol is considered to have miraculous powers. Thousands of Jain devotees, as well as devotees from other backgrounds come to receive blessings.
