Defining Jain Elements at Udayagiri-Khaṇḍagiri, Orissa


Udayagiri-Khandagiri in Orissa is well known for its long-enduring religious activity. The Jain temple at the top of Khaṇḍagiri was noted in the early nineteenth century as only recently built while the various reliefs found throughout the site date as early as second century BCE. Its identity as a Jain site, however, means that it has not been fully stud­ied in terms of the surviving artistic evidence. This paper considers this evidence and what it might reveal about Jain religious practice.

Sorry, due to our timetable, we had to leave the session after
