● This temple was constructed
by great poet, scholar and
general Ravikeerti in 634-35
AD. Ravikeerti was court poet
of Chalukyan king Pulakesi II
and writer of famous Aihole
inscription at Meguti Jain
temple
● It is the first temple with body
of the south Indian temple

stands on a basement of 4 ft
and faces north. The temple
consists of a garbhagriha,
pradakshinapatha, antarala
and a mandapa.
2. The outer wall of the temple
consists of two thick
decorated moldings.
3. The mandapa portion is open
with square pillars above the
moldings. Below the base
moldings are carved chaitya
type niches, amorous
couples, musicians playing
on musical instruments and
wrestlers.
● Meguti Jain temple is built on a raised platform and fight of steps leads us to Pillared
Mukhmandapa. Upstairs on the roof is another shrine directly above the main shrine.
● The superstructure rising above the sanctum wall of the temple has been built at a later date.
● 12 pillars and 4 pilasters of the large porch have flat roof with curved eaves.
● The niches on the exterior walls and friezes on porch parapet wall are now empty
● An entrance from
portico leads us to a
chamber divided by
a wall.
● This wall segregates
front and rear
mandapa. Flight of
steps leads us to
second elevated
chamber and gate of
the second chamber
leads us to a large
hall with four pillars in
center.
● The sanctum is set
in the center of the
pillars, enclosed in
walls.
● The square garbhagriha has
a sitting tirthankara under a
tree. Some scholars
recognize him as Mahaveera.
He is flanked by two chauri
bearers on each side.
● Above the garbhagriha is
another garbhagriha, which
can be entered from the
sukhanasi
The temple is made
of abundant
sandstone with fine
grain which is easily
available in Aihole’s
hills
Meguti Jain Temple is an
example of an early
development of a Dravidian
style of Architecture
