Ādinātha Temple

In the Ādinātha Temple at Odalavadi, a shallow wide porch has been added in front of the semi-enclosed hall. The temple has two light frames (gandha-kuṭī), one positioned in the centre of the second hall, and one in the shrine room of the temple. Seen from the entrance of the temple, the image at the end of the axis is framed by two rings of light.
