Description: A city of Jaina temples was built in the 12th century 650' below Mount Girnar in Saurashtra. The biggest temple, that of Neminatha, after the name of the 22nd tirthankara, which can be seen at the top of the photo, stands in the centre of a great quadrilateral, 197' by 128'. It is surrounded by galleries and small sanctuaries, numbering 70 in all. The temple itself has a sikhara of Khajuraho type with multiple subsidiary sikharas on its flanks. It also has a great mandapa and a porch. The city enclosure contains 20 or so temples. Photo: Denis Brihat.
