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.

Anybody with a liking to the carved stone works and relics should definitely make a point to visit the place because the work is far enhanced and intricate than I have seen in other place. The place being a religious one does not allow you to take photographs and this was a bit saddening because the place just shouts you... More

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.

This large Jain temple stands in a compound with a tall sandstone "Victory Tower" (victory over the senses) which is recently built. The temple itself has many beautiful stone carvings. Little towers around the walls are being rebuilt because they have become blackened by the monsoon and possibly pollution. No photography is allowed inside, but good views may be had... More

It is a beautiful temple with a unique architecture and incredible carvings. I got the feeling that foreigners are not welcome! The people who work there are very rude. Unfortunately pictures are not allowed.

A recommended spot for photography of historical art and architecture, the elaborate carvings of figures on the walls of the shrine are noteworthy. There is also a beautiful stone tower at the entrance courtyard, which resembles like the Victory Tower of Chittor. I was fortunate to be guided around by Jain devotees volunteering at the temple and also got to... More

I love temples and the whole architectures associated with them and out of all the ones I have seen this one definitely stands out with its intricate detailing and carvings. Sadly the place does not allow you to take pictures which is quite common with most of the temples and other religious place around the country but otherwise the place... More

We aren't Jains by religion but went to visit this temple as we had heard so much about it. It is a very serene temple with some awesome architecture. It is a very peaceful place where you feel really calm and relaxed. It would've been even nicer if we had visited the place with some Jain friends, so that we... More
