Photograph of the second Jain temple in front of the fort at Belgaum in Karnataka. The temple consists of a shrine, a closed hall and an open hall. The shrine of the temple has walls with plain, horizontal mouldings and a stepped, pyramidal roof. The open hall or mandapa has a low parapet wall and a pyramidal roof, supported by lathe-turned pillars.
 
In northern Karnataka, temple construction proliferated during the period of the Chalukyas of Kalyana who were the chief power in the Deccan from the tenth to the twelfth centuries.
