Stone Idols

The sculptures made from sand stone, schist stone, granite and marble ranging from 2nd cent. V.S.(Vikram Samvat) to 16th cent. V.S. are displayed in this museum. Among these the early icons of Tirthankars are found in the form of single sand stone idols but following later developments they are made with fine carved parikar which came to be known as eka-tirthi, tri-tirthi, chaumukhji, panch-tirthi, chauvisi and sahastrakuta. All these varieties collected from various nooks and corners of India are displayed here. These Tirthankar- icons belong to 4th circa V.S. to 13th circa V.S.
Attractive sand stone idol of first Tirthankar Shri Adinath of the era of V.S. 1174 is on display here. 24 Tirthankars seated on the lap of their mother are depicted on a marble slab. This slab is called as Jina Matruka Patta and it is a part of miniature temple and unique in its type. This sculpture dates back to 12th circa V.S.
Parts of a traditional Jain wooden Gruha Chaitya (Ghar-Derasar- House Temple), parts of temple architecture and Parikar are depicted here. Vedic deities such as Sun, Hariharhiranyagarbh Murti, Mahishasurmardini etc. are also displayed here.
