The place is the birthplace of 9th Tirthankar Pushpadant. He took deeksha in Pushpakvan and underwent penance for four years. Ultimately he attained true light of knowledge- ‘The Kevalya Gyan’. The nearby villages Kukubh & Kakandi stand in ruins today. A Jain temple was constructed by Rai Bahadur Mulchand in 1874. The temple used to house idols of Lord Neminath, Lord Pushpadant & Lord Parshwanath. But these idols were stolen and now a new temple has been constructed and a big new idol of Bhagwan Pushpadant (9.25 feet high) in padmasan mudra, made of granite has been installed. Old temple building, new temple & a Charanpaduka canopy are located inside the premises of the temple. A Dharmshala has also been constructed for the devotees.
