From the late 16th century Jaina temples were built resembling wooden residential dwellings (an example is the Ajitnath), and the wada house form introduced by the Marathas became established in the area of the Bhadra. The Jaina temple of Sheth Hathsingh (1848) revived the style of medieval Gujarati architecture.
