Bateshwar Atishaya Kshetra
When the land of Shouripur was getting washed away by the waters of river Yamuna became more ruined then Bhattaraka Jinendra Bhushanji got constructed one huge temple and Dharmashala at Bateshwar. This temple was constructed on a ‘Ghat’ (Bathing & Landing place on the bank of a river) developed by king Badan Singh of Bhadavar state at that time in V.S. 1838.
At present two stories of this temple are below the level of ground. The very artistic Padmasanath 5 feet high black colored miraculous idol of Bhagwan Ajitnath, which was brought from Mahoba by sitting in a palanquin (Palki), is installed here. This idol was got reverenced on Monday of Vaishakh Krishna 7 in V.S. 1224 in the Primal state by the ‘Shravak Shrestha Jalhan’ the father of ‘Aalha – Udal’, the great warriors.
It is said that once the king of Bhadavar enquired about the date from Bhattaraka Jinendra Bhushan and unknowingly he told that it is full moon night but actually it was no moon night. When Bhattaraka Jinendra Bhushan realized his mistake he hanged a bronze metal plate in the sky with the help of power of Mantra. This bronze metal used to shine like a moon and looked like a moon up to distance of 24 miles. Next day Bhattaraka Jinendra Bhushan told the truth to king and king felt delighted that such great scholar also resides in his state.
King of Bhadavar requested for accepting some reward, firstly Bhattaraka denied all rewards but on more request he asked for the piece of land for constructing Jain Temple. King became ready to provide a piece of land but due to pressure of opponents of Jain religion the piece of land was made available in between the Yamuna River. Bhattarakji accepted and he got established the sacred & Mantrified huge slabs of mountain in the middle part of the river and got constructed exquisite temple. This temple is excellent example of ancient architecture because its 2 stories are below the level of ground and 2 stories is visible above the ground.
