This Jain temple dates back to 1248 from the Solanki period. It consists of a sanctuary and a mandapa that stand in a courtyard surrounded by small shrines. These are covered by towers that are a replica in small of the clustered tower of the sanctuary. Typical features of the western Indian style are the niches of the walls, the arch-like motifs on the towers and the elaborate mouldings of the basements. The temple is entered through a double-storey gateway which is a later addition and has Islamic arches.
