Chikka Hanasoge

Ādinātha Tri-kūṭa Basti

The Ādinātha Tri-kūṭa Basti, a late Hoysaḷa construction in the village of Chikka Hanasoge, is one of the largest Jaina temples designed on the plan of a cloverleaf. The three shrine elements share a central semi-open hall. All three image chambers, however, are also preceeded by their own associated closed halls (maṇḍapas) and vestibule spaces (antarāla). The three "wings" of the temple extend into three of the cardinal directions.
