Madhyagrāma (मध्यग्राम) is another name for madhya: one of the three grāmas (groups) used in Indian music.— Illustration of mandra (lowest group of tones) according to 15th century art.—The colour of the body of madhya-grāma is golden-yellow. He holds a vīṇā (Indian lute) with both hands. The colour of the scarf is rosy with red dots and the lower garment is green with a black design. He is well-dressed and tastefully ornamented.

The illustrations (of, for example Madhyagrāma) are found scattered throughout ancient Jain manuscripts from Gujarat. The descriptions of these illustrations of this citrāvalī are based on the ślokas of Vācanācārya Gaṇi Sudhākalaśa’s Saṅgītopaniṣatsāroddhāra (14th century) and Śārṅgadeva’s Saṅgītaratnākara (13th century).
