It is not just the Jain temples which are the fabled monuments of devotion in Rajasthan. Bhinmal, especially, houses temples devoted to the Supreme Godhead in Hindu mythology- Lord Mahavishnu. The Varah Shyam Temple in Bhinmal is a temple dedicated to the Varaha Avatar of Lord Vishnu. It is said that the demon Hiranyaksha had dropped the whole world into the bottom of the ocean so that the Devas would not be able to challenge his power. The Devas approached Mhavishnu and Lord Vishnu took the avatar of Varaha or a boar. He dived into the ocean and used his tusks to bring out the world out of the abyss of the ocean. The temple contains inscriptions and carvings which beautifully narrate this story.
