Haryana has been a terra incognita as far as the beginning of Jainism and Jaina art are concerned. The hoard of Jaina bronzes from Hansi in district Hisar, discovered just accidentally in February 1982, which has remained unpublished all these years, thus, forms an important discover which throws very welcome light on the beginnings of Jainism in this northern state adjoining Delhi.
It provides the earliest archaeological evidence of the prevalence of Jainism in Haryana as also of the bronze art of the region.
