I saw many places to build a temple of Khodal. Also seen near Kagvad village between Rajkot and Jetpur. This land seemed to fit all the way. Since Saurashtra has the highest levee patel, this was the center part of Saurashtra. On the other hand, since the river Bhadar was close to the water, there was plenty of water available and 100 acres of land could be found simultaneously, so it was decided to build a temple of Ma Kodal near Kagavad village.
The idea of constructing a Khodaldham temple that symbolizes the unity of the entire Leuva Patel community came to Nareshbhai Patel in 2002. When Shivotri Wadi of Nareshbhai Patel was sitting for five or six friends, Nareshbhai Patel put his mind to the friends and said that such a big leuva patel society, such a great strength, the society is scattered.
Shri Khodaldham Trust-Kagwad has constructed a temple of Benmun sculpture near Kagwad village of Jatpur taluka of Rajkot district and according to Shastra. The Khodaldham Temple has been constructed from 2 lakh 30 thousand cubic feet of Bansi Pahadpur, which originates from a mine near Bayana village in Bharatpur district of Rajasthan.
The width of the temple is 252 feet, 5 inches. The length of the temple is 298 feet, 7 inches while the height from the ground to the flag is 159 feet, 1 inch. A 14-foot-tall, 6-ton gold embedded pottery has been installed at the apex of the Khodaldham Temple. A 40-foot-high flag has been placed near the Kalash. A flag of fifty-two flags is flying over the flag. About 650 statues erected by the artisans of Orissa have been erected from Mandovar to the summit of the Khodaldham Temple.
The plinth is made 18 feet above the ground in the Khodaldham Temple, and a kernel (mahapith) up to 6 feet 5 inches above it is made. Scripturally Gajathar, Ashwathar, Grasshar and Narathur are installed in the kanjith. Which is also in the Khodaldham Temple. Grasshopper is the fifth largest layer in the bench. Gaj means elephant and horse means horse and grass means centuries ago we had an aquatic animal. This creature of water could also live on the ground. In time, these creatures disappeared from the earth. The animal called grass.
The events of Ramayana, Mahabharata and Gita have been put on hold in Narhathar in Karnataka. 37 stones are engraved for the engraving of the Ramayana occasions, 15 stones for the Mahabharata occasions. Since Vyasaji writes Mahabharata to Ganapati, there are occasions ranging from the Pandavas to the abode. Thus many occasions of Srimad Bhagavad Gita have been engraved in 12 stones. Thus, in a total of 72 pink stones in Narhar, the events of the Ramayana, Mahabharata and Gita have been put on hold.
Mandovar means a conical wall of the temple that covers the sanctuary from the outside. In this way, the mandavar, ie the section from the back of the head to the head of the chinja, is called mandovar. The temple of Khodaladham has a double paved mansion with a mandar. Inside the temple, there are statues of Parvati, Mahisasur Mardani, and statues of Mataji including Ma Amba. Ganpati is sitting in the saddle of Mandovar. In Jangi, the temple is decorated with 10 incarnations of Vishnu and 24 forms, 12 forms of Surya, 8 forms of Saraswati, 4 of Brahmaji, 20 of Parvati, 12 forms of Shivaji and three-by-three-foot statues of Bhairavji.
As we go up the steps of the Khodal Dham temple, the first dome in the dance hall comes and then crosses the caves, so that the main fog will come in the darshan. In the main artistic dome of the Khodaldham Temple, 16 statues have been set up, including four corners, four directions and eight sun-shaped statues.
