Two idols of Jain Tirthankaras, claimed to be over 2,000 years old, were found while digging a tank in Parmarwali ‘gali’ of Chotila, about 50 km from here, on Monday.
The discovery has sent a wave of excitement through the Jain community in the area and large number of religious heads, community leaders and members have converged to take a glimpse of the idols.
