This is one of the main tirthas of the five in Kutch-Bhuj; it is very much renowned because of the miraculous idol of Shri Prabhu. The temple, situated in the heart of the town Ruthari was religiously installed and opened on the eighth dayofthemonthofVaishakh inV.S. 1895. The art within the peak of the temple is exquisitely attractive. The structure of the temple and the art-work from bottom up to the top in golden-brown colour is indeed charming to view. The temple has an idol of Mulanayak Shri Ghrutakallola Parshvanath Bhagavan in Padmasana posture, it is 30 cms. high. A miraculous event is associated with the typical name. A Shravaka, Uddeshi by name, purchased an idol of Shri Parshvanath Bhagavan from a poor man. He placed it in the godown of corn. On the next day it was found that the whole godown of corn was full to the brim. Surprised as he was, Uddeshi talked of this to a Yati in Suthari. The Yati got constructed a small Shrine and ceremoniously installed the idol in it. On this auspicious
occasion a SWAMI-VATSALYA was organized. Ghee, placed just in one vessel, was freely used but not exhausted; it got lessened not in the least. The same idol of Shri Parshvanatha Prabhu was found in the vessel; it was taken out and ceremoniously installed with cries of victory. This popularised the name in the common masses as "Ghrutakallola Parshvanath" In the temple we also have very ancient and typical idols of Gautamaswami and Padmavatidevi.
