The king of Mewar was out hunting, when he reached the temple and decided to rest in the premises for a while. The aged priest offered him prasad (sweet offering). Unfortunately, the king noticed a strand of white hair in the prasad. He sarcastically remarked that probably Lord Mahavir’sidol had grown a moustache. Out of fear the priest nodded. The king said he would partake of prasad the next day, only on seeing the Lord’s moustache.
 
The priest prayed all night to the Lord. Shri Mahavir appeared before the priest and asked him to cover the face of the idol with a piece of cloth. Next day, when the king lifted the cloth, to his amazement he saw that the idol of Lord Mahavir indeed had a moustache.
 
The king apologized for his arrogance and took the blessings of the priest before he departed. This is why, among Rajasthan temples , Muchhal Mahavir has become the most popular tourist attraction.
