These temples are not properly maintained even they are under archaeology department, but after visiting them one can feel they must be a very good and royal places at that time. This campus has 3 small temples, the main point about these temples is that the only source of light in these temples is the main door which is of the same height as that of the main statue in the temple.
The most important attraction of this temple is the 18 ft. tall Parsvanatha Tirtankara statue in the garbhagriha (sanctum). This sculpture with a seven hooded serpent over his head represents a perfect yogi or a realized soul with a benign and sympathetic smile on his lips. Such Jain sculptures are rare. The pillars are designed in such a way that the bottom part produce sound and the curve part modify the shadow in different shapes and size. The campus is clean and there is one guy who is not a guide but he knows detail about the place and take care of the place alone.

Hoysaleshwara Temple, Kedareshwara Temple and Basadi Halli - all three are within 1 km radius and form the three must-sees in Halebid. Basadi Halli has three Jain statues in three separate and differently architected chambers. It is pretty relaxing with sculpting similar to the other Halebid attractions. Once again this is for the photogra[hers and for those who enjoy intricate carvings. Upkeep is not good and there are no guides unlike the Hoysaleshwara Temple.

Its located on start of the road which takes you to Kedareswara temple, another masterpiece of old carvings. Jain Basadi temple is not very crowded and this gives opportunity to see through carvings and structures at peace.

must see place - though it may not be included in standard tour packages. Quiet setting and austere but beautiful architecture, in a very different style to the main temple.
