Photograph of one of the minor Jain temples at Deogarh taken by an unknown photographer in the 1890s. Deogarh is located in the modern state of Madhya Pradesh. The site is most famous for beautifully carved Hindu sculptures depicting scenes from Vishnu's life. These were found in the Dashavatara temple and are some of the most famous Gupta sculptures in India. Deogarh is also home to a group of Jain temples dating to the 9th and 10th Centuries. This photograph shows a group of large slabs carved with Jain images of both standing and seated Tithankaras. They date to the 10th -11th Centuries and were found in the area of the fort at Deogarh.
