The Jain temples lie close to the Bhojeshwar Temple. One can view yet another incomplete structure of this legendary Jain shrine. The incomplete structure also has a stone-raising ramp similar to the Bhojeshwar Temple. The temple has three figures of the thirthankaras characteristic of all Jain Temples.

Among these, the most important one is a colossal statue of about 20 feet high of Mahavira. The remaining two statues are of Paraswanath. The temple is of a rectangular plan. There is also an inscription on the base of one of the statues mentioning the name of King Bhoja.

The same temple complex also contains a shrine for Acharya Mantunga who wrote the famous Bhaktamara Stotra.
