THis is one of the three Jain temples, which are located within the same compound. The architecture is similar to the temples in the Western complex.

Smaller and partially restored. Fine sculptures and bands. Very similar to the Hindu temples but the striking black image in the inner sanctum.

These are Jain temples very close to the other temples so most trips will being you by here. Nice intricate work, and some private shops as you enter. Not a big crowded place, and some groups dont come here.

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.
