A nice jaina temple

This in the Jaina temple complex. Some of the sculpture is amazing for its variation on the typical Jaina iconography.

Adinath Temple, an attraction of the Eastern Group of Temples. Beautiful carvings of Yakshis (female mythical beings and partner of Yakshas), on the entire structure of this small temple in compare to the other temples. The design and decoration at the roof also make the tourist & architecture lover speechless.

I stayed in Khajuraho 3 days, which is faaar too long. So I had plenty of time to visit the Adinath temple. It amazed me that many locals don't seem to know the temple name. They all know the "Jain temple group", which Adinath is part of, though. The people gardening and the those "guarding" the temples where all out... More

The temple dedicated to Adinath is a very nice small temple compared to Parswanatha and is next to parswanatha temple. The Gopura is very nicely decorated with beautiful sculptures with sura sundaris.Also has the images of Jain yakshis.Donot forget to see the design and decoration at the roof. Take nice pictures of this small and beautiful temple.

Adinath Temple, an important part of the Eastern Group of Khajuraho Temples, is a significant example of the Jain settlement in Khajuraho. North of Parswanatha is the more modestly sized Adinatha Temple.This ancient shrine is dedicated to the first Jain TirthankarAdinath - the founder of Jainism.What catches the fancy of visitors are the beautiful carvings of Yakshis (female mythical beings...

The last of the 3 main Jain temples in the enclosure, this one is the oldest and smallest. Still has a wide array of interesting carvings on the outside to admire and the location amongst the trees makes for some pretty pictures. Worth a visit.

This temple is built on Hindu approach, as for other temples at Khajuraho, although there is a beautiful image of Adinath from the Jain faith. Definitely see this + Parsvanath temple right next door. There is also a Jain bookstore in the complex---really interesting to learn more.

This Jain temple comes under the eastern group of Khajuraho temples. This temple is dedicated to Adinath. King Keertivarman built it in late 11th century. Its sanctum has no pradakshina. Temple has lavishly sculpted figures including Yakshis. Its original deity statue was found missing and later another statue was installed. Only two parts of this temple have survived i.e. vestibule... More

The Adinath Temple is smaller but the detail is great! Great to visit in the afternoon. Easy to walk around.
