विजयेन्द्र कुमार माथुर[7] ने लेख किया है ...क्षीरपुर = खेड़ (जिला जोधपुर, राज) (AS, p.250) : लूनी नदी के तट पर बालोतरा से 5 मील दूर प्राचीनकाल का प्रसिद्ध तीर्थ. यहां के विस्तृत खण्डहरों तथा नष्ट भरष्ट मूर्तियों तथा अन्य अवशेषों से प्रमाणित होता है कि इस स्थान पर पहले एक बड़ा नगर बसा हुआ था. परवर्ती काल के कई मंदिर यहां आज भी हैं.
