New on Display after Restoration: Reconstructed Group of Sculptures from Ladol

Recently after Restoration, we have installed two sets of seated Tirthankara images along with Pitha, Parikara and Fly-whisk bearers, one dated V.S.1330 = 1274 A.D. and the other dated V.S.1337 = 1280 A.D. As display spaces, we have chosen the small enclosures of the wall-doors which are part of the design by the architect of L.D. Museum building. The act of assembling together five pieces including the Tirthankara, according to the traditional principles has transformed the door enclosure into devakulika- khattaka of the medieval Jaina temple.
