This Jain temple and the bird hospital in its compound are amazing. You can go in and see the hurt and sick birds being cared for. The temple itself is also beautiful, and there's a meditation cave in the information center at the bottom. FYI you'll have to take your shoes off like most temples and mosques- here there is...

Located across from the Red Fort it stands out among the old city surroundings. If you have the time and interest you could brave the crowds for a visit.

While its built in a busy street, have to find parking to visit the place, good for people who from the same community who would associate it with the others may not find it interesting as its not historical

We hoped to enter the Temple but were there at a time when outside visitors were not allowed inside the temple proper. We were, however, still able to visit the Bird Hospital on site. This is where injured birds are brought in by people off the street and then nursed back to health by practitioners of this religion. One has... More

Place is simple and peaceful. Not much to see around it is a simple building. Not much crowded so you can actually spend some time on your own and relax.

The place is opposite to Red For. The vicinity is very crowded but that does not deter visitors from going to the place. During festive season it a treat to watch the decoration and festivities over the place.

All Jain temples are heart touching for prayers & always a sample of construction......Very nice temple... If u want to get everlasting peace with gods presence surrounded by fresh air and scenic beauty, go there and sit inside. You can spend hours here.. gone so many times to relax & get refreshed :) :)
