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

I liked the temple but didn't like the dirty floor on first floor. Photography is good inside the temple.If you are interested in photography then visit small gullies (narrow lane) for some unusual photography.

If you travel to Bikaner and have time to spare please squeeze in your visiting schedule also this beautiful Jain temple. 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, carvings and crafts all around it. The priests are friendly... More

This is a beautiful temple with amazing views and a unique and interesting history. Take the time to chat with the priest and climb the stairs to the very top. The painting are amazing! Spend some time just sitting and enjoying the peace and quiet too.

I have seen many of the jain temple in india but this is a wonderful temple with golden fresco paintings. the speciality of this temple is that the foundation of this temple is made by butter . 40000kg butter was used in the foundation of this temple.
