In ancient times it was famous for the miraculous idol of Bhagwan Shantinath reverenced in ‘Shak-Samvat 1535’.

The story related to the arrival of Bhagwan Mallinath is quite interesting. It is said that before this idol of Bhagwan Mallinath was placed among other broken & unbroken Jain idols at Ardhapur village in Nanded District. Once ‘Padmanandi Bhattaraka’ of ‘Karanjapeeth’ was going to Bheekar village. Padmanandi saw the idol of Bhagwan Mallinath in Ardhapur village while he stopped there for relaxation. The thought of taking the idol of Bhagwan Mallinath to Karanja came to his mind when he saw the idol. He asked for the permission for taking idol with him but head of Panchayat & other members of Panchayat of Ardhapur village refused his request. Then Padmanandi Bhattaraka in his palanquin (Myana) went directly to the Nizam of Hyderabad. He asked the carriers of palanquin to leave the palanquin when he entered in the Nizam’s Court. The very astonishing thing happened that palanquin hanged in the air. The Nizam was quite surprised to see this & more ones he was pleased with this miracle. The Padmanandi thus got the permission of taking idol with him.
After this Bhattaraka took idol to Karanja from Ardhapur village. On the way Padmanandi stopped in Shiradashahapur for night relaxation. In Shiradshahapur during night he saw the dream to install the idol in Shiradshahapur. In morning when devotees tried to pull the chariot but they were unable to pull the chariot and therefore according to the dream the idol was installed in Shiradshahapur only. A magnificent temple was also constructed. The visitors have also seen the miracles of this idol, which occur time to time.
