|Description:||To provide an upper shrine, which is a feature in most of the larger Jaina temples, the first storey of the tower had to be made a distinct feature, and with a projecting front or entrance. This temple has an outer hall or mandapa, having extensions on each side, with an inner hall about 20 1/2 ft. square inside, and a door on the south side as well as the entrance from the open mandapa.|
