Jain Temple[edit]

Rata Mahaveerji or Hathundi Teerth was built in 313 A.D. (370 V.S.) and was earlier dedicated to Parshvanatha. After the installation idol of Shri Mahaveer Bhagwan in 1278 (1335 V.S.) this temple has Bhagwan Mahaveer Swami as its primary deity.[1] This idol is made of bricks, sand and calcium, having a reddish (Rata) colour and hence also is called Rata Mahaveerji. This 135-cm tall idol of Mahaveer Swami is in a padmasan position.[2] The 4th century idol is still present in this temple.[3]
