Since then every year the Maharathothsava of Lord Parshwanath and Goddess Padmavati Devi has been conducted for over 1400 years as per the tradition. The present Maharatha is about 450 years old. The new Maharatha on completion will replace the old one and will be used hence forth for Maharathotsava”.
