Places to visit

  • Shri Panchasara Parshwanath Mandir : Anchasara Parshwanath Jain Derasar is one of the largest among Patan's more than 100 Jain temples. It was dedicated to Shri Parshwanathji and was established in 746 CE by King Vanraj Chavda. He carried the Moolnayak idol from his native Panchasara and is thus known as Panchasara Parashwanath Bhagwan. Muslim invaders damaged the temple, which was later rebuilt. The refurbished Jinalaya of the past was made of wood and rebuilt in stone throughout the twentieth century. Over 51 lesser temples surround the main temple.

    Panchasara Parshwanath Temple, also known as the Jinalaya Vanraj Vihar, is embellished with intricate stone sculptures and white marble flooring that are typical of Jain architecture. This magnificent structure is 180 feet long and 90 feet wide. This temple's domes, pillars, ceilings, walls, and mandaps are all adorned with beautiful carvings and artistic images. The temple's main sanctum contains an approximately 120-cm-high white marble idol of Bhagwan Panchasara Parshwanath in Padmasana pose. An umbrella with seven hoods covers the idol's head. The major lord's idol is thought to be far older than 746 CE. Shri Chandraprabhswami can be found on one side of Lord Parshwanath. It also includes a white marble statue of Vanaraja

  • Distance: Shri Panchasara Parshwanath Mandir is 69 kilometers away from Radhanpur

  • Bindu Sarovar : Bindu Sarovar literally translates as a lake of drops. Lord Mahavishnu's tears are said to have fallen into this lake. Bindu Sarovar, also known as Matru Gaya Kshetra, is one of Hinduism's five sacred theerthas, or Pancha Sarovar. Manas Sarovar in Tibet, Pushkar Sarovar in Rajasthan, Narayana Sarovar in Gujarat, and Pampa Sarovar in Karnataka are the other four. Hindus generally travel to Gaya in Bihar to offer pinda to their male ancestors, but Matru Shradh is performed solely at Bindu Sarovar. It is also known as the Sri-sthal, or "pious place," and is mentioned in the Rig-Veda, an old Vedic scripture.

    According to mythology, Bindu Sarovar is the location where Sage Kardhama performed great penance for 10,000 divine years in order to see Lord Vishnu. Sage Kapila had preached Moksha Gnana to his mother, Devhuti, on the banks of the Saraswati at this Bindu Sarovar, and performed the Matru Shradh of his mother's redemption. Lord Parshuram is reported to have performed 'Matru Shradh' at Bindu Sarovar, and his temple was built here for darshan. As a result, Bindu Sarovar is considered as sacred as Allahabad's Triveni Sangam.
