Chintamani Parshvanath Derasar

The Derasar built by Nagarsheth Khushalchand has rich historical and cultural context. The chaumukh idol installed in the Derasar was brought from the destructed ancient Derasar of Saraspur. The main idol of the Derasar is black idol of Chintamani Parshvanath which is known for attractive silver parikar. Nagarsheth Nathusha played an important role in the construction of this Derasar with three domed complexes in the year 1798. The other two domes enshrine majestic idols of Shantinath and Sambhavnath. The unusual sculpture of elephants holding bunches of mangoes in their trunks inevitably grabs attention of the visitors.
