Reviews Jain Museum
The Jain Museum is situated outside the complex of temples and is a round and one room building in the midst of a small dusty garden.
The entrance of this structure has snarling stone animals and as one progresses through these it is possible to see stone carvings that have been brought from derelict or destroyed Jain temples.
In this museum, there is no fan or air-conditioning and hence it is advised to come early or late during the day. Around the walls, there exists a fresco of stone swastikas (an ancient Jain and Hindu symbol).
There exists a stiff Parsvanatha Statue that has devil cats below it and rhinos around.
Another famous statue is of the Tirthankara who is sitting cross-legged and there are cats playing underneath.
Some other statues are of the students looking respectfully towards their teachers, elephants processing with their head and trunks held high etc. The pieces here are of the sand-colored stone or black marble.
