About Adinath Temple, Khajuraho

The Adinath Temple is a part of the Eastern Group of Khajuraho temples. It was built by the rulers of the Chandela Dynasty during the 11th century. Khajuraho was the capital of the Chandelas. These temples are the remaining examples of the Indo-Aryan style of architecture that was popular during the rule of the Chandelas. These temples dedicated to Hindu and Jain gods are mainly popular for the beautiful statues of couples in their private moments.

The main theme of the temples here is celebrating the various moods of a woman. Every temple is divided into three parts, the primary entrance, the main hall and the innermost chamber. According to geographical architecture these have three different sides, western, eastern, and southern.

The Adinath Temple is beautifully designed with gorgeous sculptures. It is dedicated to the Jain saint Adinath. The walls of this temple are decorated with the sculptures of the court musicians. Though the temple is nothing compared to its original appearance but all the renovation works have paved the way for a glorious ruin at least. Only the innermost hall and the porch have survived the attacks of time. The renovated temple has an arched lime stone entrance and sanctum. The construction is in the form of a ‘saptaratha’ and one single pillar which makes it more beautiful.
