This temple was built by Bhanda Shah for Sumati Nath , a Jain saint. It has beautiful Rajasthani paintings of the ceilings, walls and even doors. We were told that 40,000 kgs of ghee was used in construction instead of water. Though a bit difficult to reach as the temple is located in the old part of the town, yet... More

People around looked shady & the entrance was all blocked with some construction. Not worthwhile if you are not the religious types

This was built before Bikaji the founder of Bikaner came to this place. The carvings,and geometry is so perfect and unique and based on mathematics and sciences .The temple is in very good condition nd the best part is the Pandit speaks and converse in English explaining and showing the beauty and marvels of the temple .

This place holds very divine and antique sculpture. Its building is also very nice. There are many stories behind this temple, but it is said that a tons of Ghee still comes from the foundation of this temple which was poured during its establishment.

Inside the walled city of Bikaner is the three storied Bhandasar Jain Temple. Although constructed started just after the mid-1400s the temple wasn’t completed until the early 1500s. Bhandasar is dedicated to the fifth tirthankar (teacher of Jain philosophy), Sumtinath. Most Jain temples are beautifully carved but not colorful. Bhandasar is simply stunning inside! Along with beautiful carvings are vibrant... More

This temple was built even before Bikaner was habitated. It was developed by Seth Bhandashah in 14th century. Wonderful place to visit. If you are in town, don't miss this.
