Popularly known as the Mota Derasar, the Pallaviya Parshwanathji temple is believed to be around 1200 years old and is considered to be among the oldest temples in north Gujarat. It was built by King Prahladhan. The old temple had been badly damaged due to earthquakes and other natural calamities, and the reconstruction of the new temple had commenced in 2008. At that time the idols were shifted to nearby Upashray.
The Prabhuji Pravesh ceremony of Parshwanathji, the 23rd among the 24 tirthankaras at the newly reconstructed Pallaviya Parshwanathji temple in Palanpur was held in September.
