Pārśvanātha Śvetāmbara Jaina Temple

The Pārśvanātha Śvetāmbara Jaina Temple was established in 1914. The temple consists of a shrine with a closed hall and a wide porch. It is unusual in this temple that the porch has not been placed frontally, aligned on one axis with the image chamber, but that it has been positioned to the side, facing the entrance to the compound. The Pārśvanātha Śvetāmbara Jaina Temple has a double-storeyed shrine configuration. The two image chambers (garbha-gr̥has) house statues of Pārśvanātha.
