Jain TemplesApprox. Time: 1 hours
Activity Level: Easiest

The Parswanath Temple is the oldest and the most beautiful of the Jain temples. The walls of the sanctum are carved with animal and human figures. The shikhara is crowned by an amalak and a waterpot containing a lotus flower.

The temples at Lodurva exhibit fine examples of intricate craftsmanship on yellow stone. They have ornate carved arches at the entrance and a Kalputra, the Divine-Tree, within. In the temple is a hole from which a snake is said to emerge every evening, to drink an offering of milk. Supposedly, only the "blessed" can actually see it.
