Travel to Great Mirror: Photo 12
In the back of the temple is a courtyard lined with 80 or 84 deva-kulikas, or subsidiary shrines. Different sources give different counts, but the number in any case is explained as a multiple of 24 (the number of tirthankaras in each cosmic cycle) plus some of the four eternal tirthankaras in each cycle--Adinatha among them. The 84-count includes three sets of 24 (past, present, future), plus a dozen eternals.
