Description: This is a Jaina temple. It contains several differently shaped vimanas. Under the Vijayanagara dynasties some additions were made to the original temple, such as the demon heads above the "spread peacock's tail", and the mandapa. The ceiling of the latter was also painted during this later period. These frescoes describe the lives of Dharmanatha and Neminatha and several other thirtankaras [sic].
