The wooded pillars of this 400-yr old temple are covered in mesmerizing vegetable dye paintings highlighted by carved brackets. These art works contain the paintings made by of King Kumarpala, a Solanki ruler, and Jain preacher Acharya Hemchandra.

The walls of the temple are covered with floral motif and miniature sculpture that draw your attention towards them.
