Located in the busy city, but actually there were no lines. The city is very proud of this Temple and they should be.

It is a beautifully carved stone structure. The temple has a positive energy and even if you are not a devotee do visit to experience the space. The carvings are intricate and awe inspiring. I loved being there and recommend must see.

This is complex of Jain temples with great stone-work and beauty of the ancient temple architecture. This is not a very popular tourist site but it is actually a very good place to visit. Teeming with history, it also has a minarette (kirtee Sthambha) within the complex. Rajesh Bhat, Ahmedabad.

One has to visit this Hathee Singh Jain temple to see a glimpse of traditional stone carving art of our craftemen. It's a pity that we are not allowed to take photos inside. The work of stone carving is marvelous to tell the least. The 'Kirti Stambha' outside the temple offers a good opportunity for the shutter bugs.
