History of Mahavirji

Lord Mahavir, Born in a princely family all the comforts of life were available to him but child Mahavir did not evince interest in worldly pleasures. Having strong spiritual inclination and desire to do good Found from a hollow on the hillock near the temple, this very ancient idol of the is serene, and beautiful. The appearing of this idol of Mahavir is related to a miracle. A milkman cow did not give milk. On looking for the reason, it was found that the cow used to go and stand on a hill and all her milk oozed out on the sand hillock. The milk man had various doubts but the could not know the reason. At last when digging was done on the hill, an idol appeared. Hearing that an idol had appeared, worshippers enthusiastically came rushing from far and wide. By merely bowing their head to the idol, people had their wishes fulfilled. This splendid temple was, therefore, built and the idol was installed. Even today, worshippers who bow their head to the idol, feel boundless peace and their wishes are fulfilled. Impressed extremely by the idol, the kings of Jaipur donate the expenses of the lamp, incense and other material for worshipping. The annual fair is held here from the thirteenth day of the bright half of the month of Chaitra to the first day of the dark half of the month of Vaishakh.
