Majestic Jain temple

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

What an architecture ... which created this marvellous temple complex. Unbelievable skill .. which truly reflects the "eye for details" of our ancestors .... really beyond words. The surroundings could have been better maintained (lawns and the hedges ) to have a good overall impression for the visitors.

This one is larger than Adinath and perhaps the more impressive of the 3 inside the enclosure. More intricate design than is usual for Jain temples with plenty of carvings to be seen on the exterior walls.
