There is peace in a chaotic city like Mumbai. In the temple-like oprincipalmente the work of artifice, of tracery in stone, which always surprises us. Jaine The temples are always beautiful.

This place is lovely and worth a short visit. Beautiful decoration with bright colors and gold leaf and very interesting to see people worshiping. It is a sacred place to these people, so need to be slightly careful about not being too intrusive. But visitors are welcome. Dress appropriately (i.e., shorts, bare arms, etc., probably not a good idea).

excellent to see a little of the culture although did feel like an intruder. Its amazing to see such work on temples like this which take such high levels of maintenance to keep them in this presitne state. short visit is all you need, remember to cover shoulders arms and legs they dont appreciate holiday ware.

The temple is a must to be visited by a first time visitor to Mumbai. The best time is in the morning wherein the visitor will also be able to witness certain morning rituals. The temple is one of the oldest Jain temples in Mumbai. Do not miss the stories depicted by wall paintings on the first floor.

Photos are allowed of the exterior only and one must remove shoes before looking inside.
