A 7th Century Jain Temple in Tribal Orissa

On the way back from Nandapur Market, we stopped at Subai Temple, a 7th century Jain temple in the midst of the Orissa tribal belt. Here is a pic of T-Bird on the road to the temple...
And here is the temple, with the junior priest standing decoratively in front of it...


The temple musicians were having a practice session that day...
Here's a video of them at work. 


The idol of Mahaveer


The head priest in the sanctum sanctorum...
