Honestly, I wasn't too sure what to expect having never been in a Jain Temple before, but the artwork and the beauty and the work that was done in here is just a feast for the eyes. As a photographer I wanted to take pictures, but that isn't allowed, so I didn't. It isn't very large, but visit all the... More

It was a gold diorama of the religious history of Jainism. You can google image it to see how spectacular it is. There are flying gold chariots and no less than... More

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.
