As it typical with Jain Temples there is a rather circuitous route through the building of many columns leader to the niche that has the most sacred dieties, and along the way are many distracting erotic images. In this building, it was particularly difficult not only because of the low ceiling and dark passages, but also because of the filtered light that came through a metal screen that covered over the open courtyard areas. What this screening did was a mystery to me, but the effects on the photography of the dieties was interesting.
