Vamana (dwarf) is one of the incarnations of Vishnu. This simple but large temple in the Eastern group stands in a field cut off from the other temples. Worth a visit if you are planning to check out the Eastern temples.

We visited this temple early morning when the sun light was slowly illuminating the beautifully carved temple and the statue of Vamana. I think pictures speak louder than words so I would post a few pics so you can view the grandeur of this temple, located in the eastern group of temples.

Dedicated to the Vamana avatar of Vishnu, this temple is away from the main complex. It has an vertical ascent similar to that of the Javari and sculpture equally rich in detail.

Located in the eastern group of jain temples this small masterfully craved materpiece proves that bigger is not always better. When visiting the eastern group it is best to go early to avoid the crowds of tour buses and beat the heat.
