posture. The colour of the idol is white in colour and the height of the shrine is 30cms.
In the history of Rajagirh, a holy shrine named "Gunashil Chaitya" has been described. Thus according to history that place may be "Gunayaji." The temple belongs to the times of Lord Mahavira
. It is believed that Lord Mahavira visited this place several times and gave sermons seated in Samosarans. As per another opinion, this is the place where the first and the chief disciple of Lord Mahavira, Shri Gautam Swami achieved Kewal Gyan. Shri Gunyaji Teerth is regarded as very holy and significant for the devotees because it is contemporaneous to Lord Mahavira. Chaitya 'Guniyaji' is a deformation of 'Gunashil'.
The shrine of Shri Gunyaji Teerth is well connected to different places. Cars and buses can go up to the temple. The temple is about 3Kms from Navada Railway Station in Gunayaji village.
