Unearthing a Glorious Past

The temple's history is as captivating as its architecture. Though the exact origins remain veiled in time, the discovery of a Chandraprabhu idol in 1956 reignited the area's significance as a Jain pilgrimage centre. This discovery fueled the belief that Tijara was once a revered Dehra, a place of Jain idol worship. The subsequent establishment of the temple in 1956 marked the town's resurgence as a spiritual hub.
