Bhand Deul, one of the two surviving temples in Arang
, can be dated to the early Haihaya period, (9th century AD). Images of three Jain Tirthankaras in black basalt are enshrined in the temple. Bhand Deul was originally composed of a sanctum, mandapa and a porch, of which only the sanctum and the shikhara above it have survived. Beautifully ornamented sculptures decorate the walls of the lofty shikhara. The garbhagriha houses three elaborately framed figures of Tirthankaras (Ajitanatha, Neminatha and Sreyansa) in polished black stone.
