BRAHMA-JINALAYA BASTI
Jain
11th Century

This Jain temple is the largest and oldest temple in Lakkundi. That there are three other Jain temples here, shows that the later-Chalukyas were religiously tolerant. This temple has a garbhagriha shrine and mandapa style with deep beams on the mandapa from where the eaves are cantilevered. It resembles the Muda Bidri Jain temple.
