The desert oasis has nearly 16 Brahmanical and Jain temples which are popular for their intricate carvings and heavy sculpting. The medieval age structures are all in red sandstone with soaring pinnacles, raised pedestals, and pillars. The Sun Temple is the oldest of Osian temples dating back to the 10th century and has carvings similar to that of the Konark Temple. The Sachiyamata Temple, or the Durga Temple, and the Mahavira Temple are the two other prominent temples of Osian. However, most of the temples are now in ruins and require conservation efforts.
