This was one of the last temples we saw some I was looking for something unique. I would still recommend seeing this one as the subtle and crafted carvings really showed thinness of the skirt material in addition to the perfectly proportioned bodies.

This was a fantastic temple and just one of the few you can visit on the site. We went inside but the best part are the extraordinary figures that decorate the outside.

This is a very good place to understand the difference between Hindu and Jane via the sculpture, the details of each figure, and get the general ideas. The temple is beautiful and a must visit site. During sunrise the temple is well illuminated in soft pink light for excellent photography. It is also quiet at that time of the day,... More

It was sad to see the ancient beauty of most of the temples in the Jain Temples Complex in Khajuraho being destroyed by some overenthusiastic people by whitewashing the temples. These look now no different from the modern day temples. Fortunately the Parsvanath temple maintains its original beauty. The Archaeological Survey of India should take immediate steps to preserve the... More

My wife and I visited the Parsvanath temple whilst touring the Jain group of temples in Khajuraho. There were few other tourists there, which was a plus. The age of the temple remains a bit of a mystery but it may be older than those in the western group. Although very similar in design to the western temples, there are... More

We hired an autorickshaw to take us to the Eastern Temples. The Jain enclosure was the best. For us it was special because active worship was taking place here. A locl Jain offered to take us through and pointed out the important artwork. When we offered to tip him, he pointed to a locked Offering box. There is no admission... More
