The Babu Amichand Panalal Adishwarji Jain Temple is widely regarded as the most beautiful temple in Mumbai. Members of the Jain community are known to be exceptionally adept in the world of business, and although they believe in self-restraint and aestheticism (orthodox Jains will not tread on an ant, and at their most extreme wear masks to avoid breathing in...

It's an interesting temple but you have to view from the outside, so it's really just a quick visit if you're passing. The decorative architecture is worth seeing.

My daughter and I visited this temple only to be turned away. Being Indian and Hindu ..we were not allowed in as the head of the temple thought we were "white" I spoke to the gentleman in Gujerati but he was not happy. I told him we are Bramins he then said "ok you go in but no durshan" but... 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
