Ghantai Temple At Khajuraho

Ghantai Temple At Khajuraho

Ghantai Temple At Khajuraho, Ghantai Temple At Khajuraho tours, Visit Ghantai Temple At Khajuraho of Madhya PradeshThis Jain temple has a frieze which depicts the 16 dreams of Mahavira's mother, and a jain deity on a winged Garuda. (Built in late 10th century). To the south east of the Khajuraho village is located the fragmentary shell of a Jain temple known as the Ghantai and a little farther away is a group of Jain temples enclosed with in a modern compound-wall.

The group comprises the Parsvanath, Adinatha and Santinatha temples, besides numerous modern shrines. Some of the latter stand on the ruins of older ones, while most of them are lately built of old material and display old images. The Ghantai temple is locally so called on account of the chain-and-bell (ghanta) motifs, prominently carved on its tall conspicuous pillars, which are among the finest ones of medieval India, remarkable for their stately form, bold ornamentation and classical dignity.

Facing east, the extant shell shows that the temple was effectively of the same design as the Parsvanath temple, but grander in conception and almost twice as large in dimensions.
