Located within the Belgaum Fort complex, Kamal Basati is a Jain temple that was constructed by Bichi Raja, a clergyman of Kartavirya IV of the Ratta dynasty in 1204 AD. Built in the late Chalukyan style, the temple is noted for its tower, which is adorned with a huge lotus flower with 72 petals. The roof of the temple is decorated with images of 24 Jain tirthankaras (saints). The sanctum sanctorum houses a black stone idol of Neminatha, the 22nd tirthankar. It also houses images of Lord Parshvanath, Lord Adinath and Lord Sumatinath along with images of the navgrahas or the nine planets. Tourists can also visit the remains of another Jain temple that was called Chikki Basati.
