Description
These murals are found in bay number 4 of the north wall of the vestibule and the panel below the one at the top represents the Temiya (also called Mūghapakkha) Jataka. Here a charioteer is depicted conveying for burial the remains of Prince Temiya as well as the prince revived from his earlier (pretended) state of a being that was mute, deaf, and blind and scorned by his family. The pillars are decorated with floral designs.
