A beautiful temple, well-maintained. If you are a Jain, you should not miss a visit when you are in Pune.

It's worth the effort to visit the Jain temple in Pune to look out over the fence at the city below. But don't expect the security guards to be very friendly. Especially if you want to take pictures you're likely to be hounded out of the grounds as I was. There are definitely friendlier temples in Pune to visit.

If you want to spend a peaceful day, this is the place. The temples there are very beautiful and the view from hilltop is awesome too. Summers are cooler here

Katraj has a big busstand and a great connectivity within Pune. This temple is near the bus stand and a good one.

Everytime I pass via Pune, I make sure to visit this beautiful Jain temple.. There is also a dharmashala which Jain people can use for stay and a bhojanshala for pure veg food.. It is open round the clock.

Yes it is combination of "Beauty of Architecture and Peace of Mind".. located at top of hill.. with beautiful night view of city lights.. A sense of calmess, purity and peace descends upon the visitor the moment one steps in the temple. Jal mandir is the best part of the temple !!
