Rana coincidently found a strand of hair in the prasad and asked the priest if his Lord has a moustache. Moreover, Rana refused to offer prayers that day and demanded the priest to show him the moustache on his return after 3 days. On his behalf, the priest offered prayers for 2 days.Impressed by his prayers, Lord Mahavir appeared to him and told him to cover the idol with a cloth. On his return, Rana asked the priest to remove the cloth. When he removed the cloth, not only did he see two moustaches, but he also saw a beard on the face of the idol. Rana realised his mistake and asked the priest to forgive him. Since then, the idol of Lord Mahavir is called Muchhal Mahavir.Tourists can also visit the nearby villages of Garasia to get an insight into the tribal life of Rajasthan.
