One thing in abundance in Bikaner are Mandirs - Hanuman, Jain, Krishna and Karni Devi. This is another of those. Clean and neat though. You need to see the idols here and if you have kids put them to count the number of idols. Its a fun. The pandits are knowledgeable and advise you on the history and significance of... More

Yes, another Jain Temple - but well worth a visit, not only for its architecture and elaborate decorations but for its most informative and entertaining custodian who speaks very good English and appears to rellish showing visitors around. Even sweeping away the pigeon droppings on the outside stairs to the roof, which provides very good views of the old city... More

This is a very elegant and old Jain temple on a prominent site but its distinctive feature is the elaborate decoration all over the interior, with colourful patterns and a wealth of scenes of battle, court life walled cities and countryside. Some at least of the decoration is comparatively recent, but it was all of absorbing interest.. There is a... More

We visited a lot of Jain temples during our grand tour in Rajasthan, but this one was totally different. It is located in the old part of the city and you won't meet many visitors while visiting it. It is quite impressive because of the very colorful frescoes and carvings all around it. The priest is friendly and will allow... More

I visited here 7 years ago & was quite impressed. Having a spare few hours whilst in Bikaner I decided to pay a return visit. The Temple lies in heart of old Bikaner & can be difficult to find.- take a tuk-tuk if you don't fancy trekking on foot. However, it is an interesting walk & all part of the... More

Unlike other Jain temples that we visited where the sculptures are the most attractive feature, here it is the paintings which are the predominant feature. There are beautiful intricate paintings/murals everywhere - on the walls, on the ceilings, on the doors. So even if you have visited other Jain temples in the region, do make sure sure that you visit... More

this another attraction in Bikaner, a small temple in the interiors of the township. the speciality abt this is, the temple when it was built ghee was the major ingredient in the construction, and so during the summer s the floor and the walls will be sticky (information given by the local).. it takes hardly 15 mins to finish this...

Visited this great temple last month in old city of Bikaner near Laxminath temple. It is much better to take a less congested route from outer side. Well maintained temple under ASI. Remain open from sunrise to sunset. Oldest temple of Bikaner built in 1572 . As told by priest that its foundations had thousands kg of ghee. In summer... More

We visited a lot of Jain temples during our grand tour of Rajasthan with "Passion for Travel" but this one is totally different, no fancy white sculpted columns here just the most beautiful paintings and murals in varied shades of green and blue you can imagine all over this little temple. Not easy access in the old city we went... More
