As a child this was one of the stops for me because outside the Jain temple there are two huge elephants which fascinated me always. Every Sunday my parents would take me there. I loved that temple with its marble floors and wanting to ring the bell whilst entering. Now unfortunately don't go there often. Last week going to Walkeshwar... More

This is a really old temple of Adeshwar Bhagwan. The majestic idols of the lord bring peace and calmness to any visitor. Being a Jain, this is a temple we grew up visiting. Diwali and Paryushan are even more elaborate here. Jai Jinendra

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.

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
