Osian

Rajasthan, India

Rajisthan's largest group of early Hindu and Jain temples lies strung out along the road at Osian, which from this point runs south 64 km to Jodhpur. The temples were mostly built in the Pratihara period, 8th - 9th century, except for Mahavira temple (Jain, mostly 11th century) and Sachiya Mata temple (Hindu, 11th - 12th century).

Shown here is a temple with ruined superstructure, Harihara 3 (early 9th century).
