Jain temple

This temple has the carvings of yakshis or female mythical beings. The carvings on the outer walls are equally amazing.

Some of them are good but one or two temples have been painted with an ugly shade of yellow. It's hideous and they have spoilt the appearance.

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.

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.
