Set in the midst of Jain temples the structure and carvings are commendable, well preserved and clean courtyard.

The Parsvanath temple was originally part of the Hindu temples built by the Chandela Kings, although it was renovated about 100 years ago by a Jain devotee--- and Jain images were added (while erotic images were removed). Beautiful images and architecture .

Beautiful sculptures, well preserved when you think it's 1000 years old !!! , these statues seems recent . Take your time and visit around the temples base before climbing on the main platform, than you can feel the ambiance..

It's a Jain Temple, so it's a little different from many of the others. It's very interesting to notice the slight differences.
