according to history, sarwar was the centre of jains. about 2000 years old, this city was the capital of gour kings. at that time, it was a very prosperous and a famous city. here is an inscription of v.s. 1125 related to the reconstruction of the temple which is about 900 years old principal deity lord adinath. on 7th of july 1990, 42 idols made of black stone(about 2000 years old) were found from the midst of the ground of this temple.

it is supposed that the idol principal deity lord adinath was brought from the chittorgarh fort. in year 1197 a.d. the general of mohammad gaury, qutubuddeen ebak came here with a huge force to break and destroy this temple and idol as others. as he entered the first ground of temple, dense flock of honey bees attacked fiercely on the invaders. the invaders were freed from this trouble only after bowing their heads against the principal deity. an idol of qutubuddeen ebak is still standing here with folded hands and bowing his head.main temple is vast in size and has digambar, shwetambar and hindu temples in different parts of it.
