Khajuraho Temples

During the Chandella rule, Khajuraho was home to a large and flourishing Jain community that apparently lived on the east side of town. All the Jain temples are now enclosed within a compound wall constructed in early 20th century, with the exception of the Ghantai temple. Khajuraho Temples at Sunset, Khajuraho, India

Two of the large temples still stand in good state of preservation. Parshvanath temple which contains an inscription of 954 AD of builder Pahil, mentioning donation of gardens and requesting future generations to safeguard the temple. It mentions Chandella Dhanga as the reigning king.

Adinath Temple contains an idol with an inscription dated Sam 1215 during the rule of Chandella king Madanavarman.

Shantinath Temple is a modern composite structure that incorporates sections of several temples. It has several shrines. The main section has a 12 feet tall idol of Lord Shantinath with an inscription of Sam. 1085.

Many Jain inscriptions from the Chandella period can be seen at Khajuraho
