Jainism, an ancient Indian religion, is beautifully depicted in various forms of art and architecture across the country. From intricate Indian miniatures to grand sculptures, Jainism's core principles of animal kindness (ahimsa) are evident in every piece. One such masterpiece is found at the Pashtunath Jain temple sculpture in Haridwar, Uttarakhand. This stunning artwork showcases the devotion and reverence towards animals that Jains hold dear. The statue within the interior of a Jain Temple in the old city further exemplifies this compassionate belief system. In Kolkata (Calcutta), India stands the Parasnath Jain Temple, a testament to the rich history and cultural significance of Jainism. Dating back to the 12th century, this temple dedicated to Adinath (Rishabha) serves as a reminder of timeless traditions upheld by generations. Traveling westward to Jaisalmer, Rajasthan brings us face-to-face with another marvel - The Jain rock sculptures. Carved meticulously into stone walls below fortresses, these sculptures narrate tales from ancient times while showcasing artistic brilliance. Gwalior in Madhya Pradesh state also boasts remarkable Jain rock sculptures below its fortifications. These captivating artworks not only display exceptional craftsmanship but also symbolize deep spiritual beliefs held by followers of this faith.
