The unique Tirthankar sculptures with impressive iconography, sculptures with Ashta Dikpalakas, variety of Ambika idols, temples and the ruins stand as a testimony to the glorious past. Tirthankar’s the harbingers of non-violence are kept in the midst of Hindu idols where animal sacrifice happens even to this day.

If not, we have none other than ourselves to blame for the debacle of this great religion.
