This temple is located at the center of Jain temple premises. The Lord Parasnath is the 23rd Tirthankara of the Jain Sect. There are several other Jain temples in the same campus. Many of the idols are in broken state and not worshiped anymore. The idol is of black color. And as told by the priest, this temple was originally... More

This is certainly worth a visit for the interested tourist. The jain temples stand apart from the rest of the Khajuraho temples for their interesting sculpture often including Hindu deities. Some of these temples are active with worship and more renovated and even plastered.

Located among the eastern temples adorned with intricate Jain sculptures. It is the largest Jain temple in the eastern complex. Well preserved and well maintained. Worth a visit.

Eastern side of the temples have Jain mandirs.The architecture is similar to western side.This side is less frequented as it slightly away from the main city. We had taken a rented bike hence it was easy reaching there.

The significant most among the set of jain temples, well preserved and clean courtyard. All the Jain God statues seems new and doesnt give a perception of ancient architecture. Rather, seems like they have been converted into Jain temples where new deities have been placed in the Garb Grah. No where comparable to Western or Southern group of temples or... More

Located within the walled Eastern temple complex, this is the largest of the group and appears well maintained.Like the rest in the group all are worth seeing for their carvings and architexture. No admission charge but donations encouraged.

The Jain temples are also magnificently decorated with sculptures but unlike the Hindu shrines, they are quite prudish. There is very little erotica on the Jain temple walls though there is some amount of hedonism. Part of the reason for the explicit nature of Khajuraho, our guide informed us, was the influence of tantric doctrines on the Chandela kings. The... More

The beautiful architecture is worth seeing in detail. We went... More
