The Parshvanatha temple is part of the cluster of Jain Temples in the Eastern Group of Temples. It is well maintained and has beautiful carvings on the outside. There is no entry fee

Jain Temple with Very fine architecture and sculptures in it , just like western side temples ... sharduls, animals, dancing couples , etc..in their carving designing .. but two most impotent things we have seen only in this temple...

A- In entrance of temple on the left side pillar contains an inscription of 954 AD {{ Vikram Samvat hindu calander 1011 }} of builder Pahil, mentioning donation of gardens and requesting future generations to safeguard the temple
well inside walls having marvelous work .. more then1000 years old.. some are safe ,, some are destroyed by time manner, some by the people...
.i think we never restored ,recreated that work again in a fabulous way..that they had done in that time ..

B- in the right of pillar in entrance.. the Indian vedic mathematics.. way of "34" the magical square of "Chauntisa`s Yantra"
Well in this main square , we got 16 smallest squares and we got numbers 1 to 16 and no repetition of numbers . there are around 40 ways to get sum of 4 numbers and get each time total 34..
I shot both of things and try to explain which i got understand it..

The Parsvanath Temple is the largest of Jain temples in Khajuraho and is dedicated to Parshvanatha. There’s an idol made of polished blacn granite in the sanctum sanctorum, with an umbrella of snakes to identify the tirthankaras. Some of the more interesting features of the temple include balconied windows, latticed windows and relief sculptures of Hindu deities. It’s not interesting enough to see on it’s own, but good if combined with a visit to the adjacent Adinath Temple and the close by Jain Museum.

No charge to enter this group which is, unlike the Western Group, a fully operational place of worship, but one that fully accepts appropriately dressed visitors. On entry you might be disappointed by seemingly concrete temples painted bright yellow. There are a number of these. But venturing further brings you to the Adinath and Parshvanatha temples not painted and mostly in their splendid 1000 year old original state. Yes, there are some parts restored but not to a great extent and sympathetically done. Well worth a visit.

This wonderful ancient temple belongs to the Jain group of Khajuraho's temples. Unless other Jain temples, this one is very well ornamented and decorated. You can spent ours to look at the detailed carvings.

Jain communities were flourished during the periods of chandela kings. The temple is build by pahil and one of the oldest in the region.

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.
