Deshbhushan Kulbhushan Mandir

The beauty of the Kunthalgiri is gifted by nature. It is situated on the hill which is spread in north south direction with the height of 175 Ft. On the top of the hill the temple of Deshbhushan Kulbhushan is palced. There are 250 steps to climbe the hill. On the top of the temple (inside the Shikhar) holy anciant Padukas of Deshbhushan and Kulbhushan are their. There is story about these Padukas. There was a person named Metashah Humbad, staying in Bawagadh, he saw a dream that one cow is feeding milk to her calf on the hill and there were Padukas are burried on the same place where cow is standing. So Metashah shared his dreams with vellagers and he wanted to check wether it is really there or not. So he digged the holes on the hill and he found that Padukas are there. He took it out and replaced it on the same place. After that in 1932, Shree Haribhai Devkaranji Gandhi had constructed a temple on this place and replace the Padukas under the guidence of Shree Kanakkirti, a Bhattarak from Idar Peeth. Then Indore based Shreeman Venichand Malukchand, Solapur based Haribhai Devkaran Gandhi, Jeevraj Gautamchand Gandhi, Smt. Manikbai Baapuji Akkalkotkar had constructed the hall in front of the temple. There are 3 fit high marble idols of Deshbhushan and Kulbhushan is placed in this main temple. Shreeman Tuljaram Chaturchand Shah from Baramti and Devchand Panachand Kalambkar have replaced these idols in year 2006. On the left side of this idol we found the idol of Shree Munisuvratnath Bhagwan and Shantinath Bhagwan. In the hall idols of Bhagwan Aadinath, Parwshanath are placed. On the top of this temple a idol of Bhagwan Simandhar has been placed by Shree Chandulaal Jyotichand Shah from Baramati. This temple has glassworks inside which is done by Sou. Snehlatabai Motilaalji Shah.
