Ādinātha Temple

The Ādinātha Temple at Thachur has one open, one semi-open and two closed halls, arranged in a line, one behind the other. A shallow vestibule (antarāla) section further elongates the axis of approach to the main icon (mūla-nāyaka). Notable is that in recent times, a further open and wide hall has been constructed between the temple structure and the gateway, connecting the two. This hall is also used for the veneration of a group of nava-graha figures, raised on a square pedestal in the northern wing of this hall.
