At a distance of about 1 KM from Hoysaleshwara Temple in Halebid, Basadi Halli (or Jain Mandir) is situated between Hoysaleshwara Temple and Kedareshwara Temple.
There are three Jain temples at Basadi Halli - Parshwanatha Swamy Temple, Adinatha Swamy Temple and Shantinatha Swamy Temple. Parshwanatha Swamy Temple is an important structure with wonderful carvings. The 12 pillars that hold the doom have been cut in a fine and attractive manner. The pillars have been carved well that the images differ from one another.
The Parshwanatha Swamy figure is made out of black stone and it is 14 feet in height. A seven-headed serpent carved at the head of this figure appears to be guarding the deity.
