Mahudi Jain temple was established by Jain monk, Buddhisāgar Suriswarji in 1917AD. A 22″ marble idol of Lord Padmaprabhu was consecrated as the main murti (idol).
A separate shrine dedicated to protector deity, Ghantākaran Māhāvir was also established.
It is believed that he used to like “sukhadi” and therefore many devotees make an offering to Ghantākaran Māhāvir through the priest before eating it as a prasad (food considered to be sanctified after being presented to God). It is a common belief that the prasad should not be taken out of the temple complex.
A devotional prayer dedicated to Ghantākaran Māhāvir is recited to seek protection against various fears and obstacles.
