The Sculptures of Gauri Kund

The Sculptures of Gauri Kund and Ajaypal Temple

These two monuments are located in south-east direction, outside the Amarthol Darwaja. Their religious importance has been described even in Skand Puran. Gauri Kund has been decorated with carving of large number of sculptures in varied sizes. Late Dr Kantibhai Sompura had written his study paper on these sculptures. The carving pattern of these sculptures is indicating that they were made during the Solanki era.
