The temple is located in the village Garhbor of Rajsamand district. This village is situated in Aravalli ranges. It is 38 km from the district headquarters Rajsamand. Desuri in the Pali district is a nearby village, through which it is connected to the Pali district. Gomati river flows nearby this temple. The temple was built in 1444AD. According to the inscription inside the temple, village name was Badri, therefore, the idol is considered as BadriNath. The deity of Charbhuja Nath is considered to be miraculous. The idol of Shri Charbhuja Ji is 85 centimeters high. The four arms of the idol hold conch, discus, mace and a lotus flowers. The discus and the mace symbolize dynamic power, energy and prowess. Gurjars hold a special reverence for this temple. Gurjars attribute a sword and shield as symbol of Gurjar chivalry in every darshan. The temple is made by mirrors, Lime mortars and Marble. The excellent work of the mirror is done in the original temple. The shutters of the inner temple are made of gold while outer shutters are made of silver. Both outer and inner door of the temple are covered with silver. The temple received huge donation from the states of Mewar and Marwar and many articles of gold and silver are common in daily poojas. The Maharana of the Mewar has a special custom of visiting the temple round a year and offering prayers for the state for its well being. Garud ji is installed in the other courtyard. Stone elephants are placed on the both sides of the entrance. Temple is in the open space. The temple is visited by lakhs of pilgrims. Then the king Shri Gang Dev got divine instruction in his dream to install the idol to be recovered from water. Then he installed this idol in his garh (fort). It is said the Pandavas also worshiped this idol before proceeding for their last YATRA to Himalaya. To protect this temple about 125 battles have taken place. Many times idol also was submerged in the water for its safety.

It’s really great fun to explore the best temple of 1st Tirththankara (Lord Adinath) conceptualised like Studa, it is so good temple with nice campus and good rooms to accommodate at the place and it was really clean and neat,

If you visit Ranakpur and Muchchala Mahavir then it is must visit temple,

Near Ranakpur there are good Jain temples to explore!

Yes - you heard it right - This temple is 1000s of years old and was built by Shri Gang Dev, who in his dreams received divine instructions to install this idol which was submerged in water. The very same idol is believed to have been worshiped by the Pandavas of Mahabharat. Thus a lot of historical significance is attached to the temple and if you are a believer, its a must visit place.
