JAIN TEMPLE COMPLEX

These 31 Jain temples are somewhat later in origin than the Lord Vishnu Temple here, 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 Centuries. The temples abound in panels depicting scenes from Jain mythology. Tirthankara images, votive pillars, votive tablets and Jain images are visible from all sides. It houses about 2000 sculptures making it the largest such collection in the world.
