A very old small shrine protected by the Yaksha is situated in the middle of underground portion of the temple. The religious shrine has 7 underground levels which are kept closed due to old spiritual ideas and visitors are not allowed to view them.

It is believed that only a Balyati ascetic Digambara saint can enter in it and able to bring out the statues of this underground temple for a limited period, which is confirmed and decided earlier. The statues thus brought out for viewing (Darshan) of devotees, must be placed back with in favorable symbols. The shrine came in light when Muni Sudhasagar ji, a follower of Acharya Vidyasagar ji visited the underground floors of the temple. He brought a very precious Jain Murti which is built of expensive sandstones from the underground floors in the presence of more than five lac Jain devotees.
