Adinath Temple, an important part of the Eastern Group of Khajuraho Temples, is a significant example of the Jain settlement in Khajuraho. This ancient shrine is dedicated to the first Jain Tirthankar Adinath - the founder of Jainism.

What catches the fancy of visitors are the beautiful carvings of Yakshis (female mythical beings and partner of Yakshas), on the entire structure. Moreover, the exterior of this temple showcases three bands of sculptures of graceful sura-sundaris that look truly amazing.

It is believed that the origin of this temple dates back to the late 11th century.
