Atishay (Miracles): In 1169 a businessman from Ujjain City - Shri Lolark came here during his pilgrimage to see a dream in night. According to dream in the next morning he dug the place near a pond and thus a magnificent ancient idol of Lord Parsvanath appeared, this idol went missing and new Parshwanth Idol has been installed in the temple. In year 1858 British came here and saw the grand temple temple and vast petrographs, and they thought that there is a hidden treasure here. So they digged mines and installed explosives surrounding the petrographs. But before the explosives could burst, a dense flocks of honey bees attacked them and they had to run away. At the same time milk flooded out of mines. The temple is located 2 kms south-east of Bijoliya village. Google Map shows the exact location of the Temple.
