About PawaGiri Una :

Other than Khajuraho, an ancient temple built in 12th century during the period of Parmars is here. Ballal, the king of Malwa committed to built 100 temples after getting cured from sever disease, but he succeeded only in building 99 temples one less than hundred. So this place was named Una. (It means one less than 100)
This temple was lost onwards. This temple was letter on searched in Year 1914 when Seth Shri Harsubhji of Susari came here to Una. In Year 1934 a man was appointed here for worship. Letter on a very attractive idol of Lord Mahaveer Swami in cross legged seating posture installed in V.S. 1252 was found from under ground place. In V.S. 1953 while preparing for foundation of Dharmshala (Guest House), an idol of 3 feet in height in cross legged seating posture of Lord Sambhavnath (The 3rd Teerthankar) was found. This was installed in V.S. 1218. A pair of foot images was also found with this idol.
It is said that from this place four ascetic saints achieved salvation i.e. Moksha (Final liberation from world) named Suvarnbhadra and others in the period of Bhagwan Chandraprabhu (The 8th Teerthankar). This place is near Chirurha River, which seems the corrupt of name Chelna River, as said in Nirvankand.
