PRESIDING DEITY AND LOCATION :
Sri Adishvar Bhagwan in white color, seated in a lotus posture, of height 107 Cms, in a shrine in a large walled compound at a solitary spot 2 Kms away from Rajgadh village. (Shve).
ANTIQUITY AND SALIENT FEATURES :
The shrine of Sri Mohankheda was ceremonially consecrated on Magsar Sukla 7 in Vikram year 1940 at the hands of great Acharya Sri Rajendrasuriji. When this Acharya was on his walking tour in this area, seeing this natural atmosphere of beauty and peace, he made a prediction that here in future there would arise a great shrine. The prediction has proved true in the course of time and the spot has become a magnificent holy shrine. Countless pilgrims keep visiting this shrine which presents always busy scenes of holy activities in this desolate jungle.
Acharya Sri's final remains are also here in this “Samadhi”. He was cremated on Paush Sukla 7 in Vikram year 1963. Every year on Kartik Poornima, Chaitra Poornima and Paush Sukla 7, festival fairs are held here when thousands of devotees gather to offer their prayers.
Near the temple and within enclosed compound there are erected small memorial shrines of Sri Rajendrasurishvarji and Vachaspati Sri Yatindrasurishvarji.
