ROCK CUT CHITHARAL JAIN TEMPLE, CHITHARAL, KANYAKUMARI, TAMILNADU, INDIA The Chitharal Jain Monuments are located in a small village situated at a distance of 7 km from Marthandam and 55 km from Kanyakumari, Tamil Nadu. Chitharal is historically known as Thirucharanathupalli – the abode of Jain monks belonging to Digambara sect. It is famous for the hillock which has a cave containing rock-cut sculptures of Thirthankaras and attendant deities carved inside and outside dating back to the 9th century. Jain influence in this region was due to the Jain King Mahendravarman I (610-640). - Wikipedia.
