12th Century Jain Temple Made of Stone
Feb 2019 • Family
Once upon a time a celebrated seat of Jain philosophy, Belgaum is a gateway of temples which paints a story about ancient dynasties. Kamal Basadi is one such relic which was built in the early 12th century during the Ratta Dynasty.

The name, 'Kamal' takes inspiration from the architecture of its dome which is shaped like a beautiful lotus. Out of its 72 petals, 24 pay respect to the last 24 Thirthankars and the remaining 48 are kept untouched for the future jain prophets. The two pillars on either side of the ceiling have inscriptions in the historic Nagari script.

The Neminath idol was found in the dense thicket jungles of Belgaum and famously speculated to be older than the stone sanctum itself. You can witness Lords Sumatinath, Adinath and Parsvanath as the masterpieces. Currently, the temple is under the management of the Archaeological Survey of India. You can also find the ruined relics of another temple within the complex.

For the Gen-Zs, you cannot find anything fancy. A great place for history-buffs to spend not more than 20 minutes of your afternoon and admire the stone carvings.

An ancient Jain temple located in the Belagavi Fort precincts.

Beautiful carvings on pillars and the roof are the highlights of this beautiful temple.
