Maksi Ji

Shri Maksi Ji Atishaya Kshetra is about 1000 years old. There are 2 temples big and small having Parsvanath & Suparshvanth Bhagwan's idols.

[1] The Parmar Kings had got a Jain temple constructed here. It is stated that when Mohammud Gazanavi came to India, he came with the intention of demolishing this temple along with others. But, on coming here, he was down with a serious ailment; he had an experience of the miracle of Shri Prabhu. As a result, Mohammud Gazanavi ordered his army not to hurt the idol or temple in any way. He further got five Kangaras constructed at the entrance of the temple. It is said that the treasurer of Mandavagadh, Shri Somasundarasuriji. One opinion states that Sangrama Soni had got this ancient temple renovated. So many incidents of the miracles of the idol and the temple are heard. The idol of MULANAYAKA Shri Makshi Parshvanath Bhagavan is at a distance from the main seat, and this is indeed surprising.
