Chitaral jain temple - 2


As we pass the entrance What catches our attention on the
hilltop are two huge rocks almost resting on each other to form
a narrow opening through which you can see the beautiful
landscape on the other side.

Passing through the narrow stairway will let us to the rock sculptures.

Rock Sculptures

Carved images of theThirthankaras, with their distinct hanging earlobes,
the three-tiered umbrellaover their tonsured heads, in sitting and standing postures.
