This idol of Chintamani Parshwanath is very attractive, miraculous, fulfilling the desires of pilgrims and making them free from problems.
There is a story about the recovery of this beautiful idol. About 250 years ago a cow dropped her milk daily at that place of recovery. One old woman noticed it and keep watching. One day she did not allowed cow to go there, she tied the cow at home. But in the evening cow broke the rope and went to the place to drop her milk there. Then old woman told to others about this event. Event was strange for villagers. So they decided to search that place for some god or goddess. They dig there, found a gate of basement and this miraculous idol with seven serpent hoods. After some time idol was installed in a temple constructed at the same places.
After some years, a strange event was seen that the body of the idol broken from its neck automatically and fell to the earth. Then upset villagers decided to bring new idol of Lord Mahaveer from Jintur Kshetra and to drop this broken idol of Lord Prasvanath in to the pond. While bringing the idol of Lord Mahaveer and at the time of installation some wonders were seen, uncommon to villagers. Some time before the dropping of idol in pond, a social worker of Kshetra Shri LachhiRam Kasliwal saw a dream in night. The idol of Lord Parsvanath denied him for dropping in water. That said him to dig a pit in a room and place the idol in it and fill the pit with Ghee & Sugar up to top. Then lock the room and keep praying & worshiping up to seven days & night continuously. The body and neck will be joined thus. This was done as above and miracle was seen. Idol was joined automatically but the mark of break is still visible on it. After worships and prayers here desires are fulfilled problems & disturbances get disappeared. Because of the removal of worries of peoples here, this idol was named Chintamani Parsvanath (Chinta -Worries).
