On the way to Mandvi from Bhuj is a Jain pilgrimage, a home to 72 deris of Lord Mahavira, at Koday Village known as Bauter Jinalay (72 Temples). It is also known as “Adishwar Bauter Jinalay Mahatirth”.
Spread over 80 acres of Area, the temple also has residence facility at Dharamshala & dining facility at Bhojanalaya.
After spending the day at Mandvi and visiting the various places we planned to check out this temple. It was quite tiring and I was not very much interested to go to the temple at that time but my friend, who accompanied me to the Kutch trip, insisted that we see it.
We reached here in the evening by 6:30-7:00 pm. I was happy to see very less people and happier to get the first look of the temple, it looked amazing.
It was very peaceful and the serenity of the temple amazed me. The temple looked even beautiful once the lights are lit up in the evening. I ended up coming back again in my 3 days trip to Kutch.

ST buses and jeeps depart from Bhuj about every 30 min. If you are a group of 4-5, better to hire rickshaws/cabs thats fits in to your Budget. Local Buses are always the easy option, make sure to ask to driver/conductor to stop at the temple as its on the highway.
