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.

And yes, make friend with the priest! His life story is truly amazing. We were there on a foggy and chilly day. We spend several hours there walking around and taking photographs of the amazing paintings.
