Renowned among Jains for its beauty; given how beautiful Jain temples are, that’s saying a lot. Check out the paintings & dome ceiling I haven't seen anything like it. As this is... read more

If you want to see Mumbai, you need to hire her --- mala_bangera@hotmail.com. She took us to many places that most tourists do not... More

Renowned among Jains for its beauty; given how beautiful Jain temples are, that’s saying a lot. Check out the paintings & dome ceiling I haven't seen anything like it. As this is a small temple, with usually a lot of prayer going on.

As a non-religious person, I find religious practices very interesting and the Jain temple is a good stop for that reason for me. The building itself is quite pretty and although its smal, this was a very interesting visit.

The Malabar Hill is a rich part of Mumbai and this Jain Temple is a reflection of it. The marble work is magnificant, as usually in the Jain Temples. The place enchants from the moment you enter the yard. And the marble balconies are so beautiful... There is no entrance fee and the people there welcome the visitors. We were... More

There is no denying this is a beautiful temple adorned with some wonderful carvings / statues and the architecture and design is stunning. However it did not have the air of tranquillity or a beauty from the less is more style, something we found in the Jain temple in Cochin. Apparently this is rich temple and I wonder if that... More

Unless the visit is of devotional nature. This place can be given a miss. If there is ample time during the visit to Mumbai than can be visited.
