Bhadravathi, an ancient city in the State of Cutch, lying in the North Western tip of India boasts of many temples of renown built by Rajput kings. Though they patronised Jainism amazingly well, and the are ardent followers of Thirthankaras, they built mandirs for Hindu Gods. One among them is Maneswar Chokanda Mahadev Mandir. There are many inscriptions relating to the mandir and they adequately bring out the fame of the mandir. The very fact of the existence of Saivaaradhana in a region dominated by the predominance of Jainism, speaks volumes of the glory of Hinduism. Saivagama puja is performed in this ancient mandir and it is attracting devotees through out the year.

It is in the modern town of Bhadreeswar in Cutch।
