Adarsh Smarak Monuments
This Basti is associated will Chandragupta Maurya who lived on the small hill called Chandragiri with Bhadrabahu. Stylistically, the structure is assignable to the 9th century AD. Interestingly, the structure has three garbhagriha facing south towards the Bahubali image on the Vindhyagiri hill. The central one has no sikhara and is flanked by two shrines. The three sanctums are occupied by a standing Parsvanatha at the centre flanked by Padmavati and Kushmandini in the adjoining cells. The antarala in front of the sanctum contains figures of Yakshas Sarvanubhuti and Dharanendra. On the exterior, the Adhisthana is of padabanda type. The hamsamala beneath the kapota shows suave hamsas. The kapotanasis and the vyalas in the kantha above are badly weathered. There is a single tier sikhara with a padma cap, while the stupis are lost.
