visited here with a guide who was excellent and took the time to explain all about the Jain faith, she was of this faith and this was the temple she worships at. The temple has 2 levels with various mini temples contained on each level. A really fascinating place to visit and see the locals worship, all going about in... More

One of the most beautiful temples in the city. When you enter go with a pure heart and try not to eat anything and go. This temple gives a feeling of being blessed. Try not taking photographs and things.

A unique place and rounds out your understanding of the religions of India... there's more than Hindu, Muslim, Buddhist.... It is a calming, soothing, beautiful place. Perhaps not for the idly curious as it is a place of worship so I felt slightly like an intruder although there were only 2 worshippers at the time.

We visited this place a few months ago for pooja and my family was amazed by the crowd and the manner in which this building was taken care of. This place is good for spiritual healing and boost. I would recommend carrying water for your convenience.

Im giving this title to avoid confusion, as Bombay has a vibrant Jain community and there are several other temples. But this is probably the holiest. They are nice about allowing non-Jains up to a point, and even allow you to take pictures, but one would rather not as this is a place of serious worship. I enjoyed the rice-rangoli... More

The Temple itself is a work of art. Beautiful carved marble is all around you and surrounds the Temple from top to bottom. The history and ancient religion is definitely very unique. There is a stone carved god idol that is intriguing. Mumbai has the largest populations of Jains in India. Great temple to visit, read up on the Jain... More

Suitable for a quick visit (no more than an hour, probably half and hour) for tourists. The Jain temple was BEAUTIFUL and so peaceful. I had the privilege of witnessing a ceremony of some sort, and they didn't seem to mind my watching. You MUST wear appropriate clothing or you won't be allowed in the temple. It's free to go... More
