kundal is a historical place, its ancient name was koundinyapur where so many debates were organized. acharya samantbhadra defeated so many learned persons in debates here. the tradition of kundal is more than 1600 years old. it is supposed that samavsharan of bhagwan parsvanath & mahaveer came here and last shrutkevali poojya shridhara muni achieved salvation here.

atishaya – here lord parsvanath’s idol is miraculous. it is said that a son of a king died due to some disease, then his newly married wife prepared an idol of parsvanath made of sand and goddess padmavati and started prayers & worship with the deep heart, due to the effect of such heartly worship, her husband became alive.

same type of miracle is found in the story of king satyeshwar & queen padmashri of koundinyapur.
