Jain Temple Complex


These 31 Jain temples are somewhat later in origin than the Vishnu temple, but are no less remarkable. They are situated inside the Fort of Karnali on the hills overlooking the Betwa. The site was a Jain centre from the 8th to the 17th century. The temples abound in panels depicting scenes from Jain mythology, Tirthankara images, pillars, tablets, Jain images visible from all sides and pillars carved with thousand Jain figures. It houses about 2000 sculptures which is the largest such collection in the world.
