Few meters away from Kopeshwar, in the heart of the village is a Jain temple, which is much smaller in size. The outer wall of the shrine being in the star-shaped Hemadpanti plan.

The building is of black stone. The carvings on outer wall are less in number but the beautiful women in various poses are strikingly similar to kopeshwar.







Most of statues have very calm, peaceful glowing look.

It is said that Adinath Bhagwan idol looks of different colour in Morning, afternoon & evening.
The pillars of the hall are richly carved.


There are some very fine carvings on left hand wall at the entrance.
