Description[edit]

The outer entrance of the temple has a large pillar of carved granite in front of the main gate. The entrance doors contain intricately carved panels. Constructed in the traditional Dravidian style, the ornate carvings of the stupa are colorfully painted as they rise in a pyramid shape to the top where there is a carving of Mahavir. The small steps of the temple's main shrine are covered with many different Jain idols and symbols constructed of stone, brass and gold.[3]
