Exhibition: Jain Manuscripts

There's currently a free exhibition at the Victoria and Albert Museum in London on Jain Manuscripts.

Created to accompany the launch of JAINpedia - an ambitious project digitising Jain manuscripts in the UK - this small display shows finely illustrated Jain manuscript pages from the 15th to 19th centuries. Manuscripts were preserved in temple libraries, however the V&A's collection includes examples in a range of styles, some never displayed before.

Until 31st December 2012, in South Asia Room 41.
Planning a visit?
