Its re-emergence was initiated by Shri Adinath Peethadheeshwar and Shri Trilokinathjee Maharaj (Shri Nath Baba jee) in 1964. A temple was constructed and in 1967 idols were installed and Yajna was conducted. Shri Adinath Akhara was formally inaugurated in Prayag Kumbh in 1977 by performing Maharudra Yajna.
