A temple sculpture in Osian. 55 km from Jodhpur is the sleepy village of Osian. old artistic havelis, lovely children who ask for pens to write their homework for school, saturated in the smiles and laughter.Very popular old temples from 11to 12 century by Gurjara Partiharas. Schiya Mata temple is the new name of this ancient temple and a lot of devotees flock here, and so is the case with ancient Jain temple that has ongoing renovation to preserve this great heritage of Jainism.
