Excellent carvings and the invaluable darshan of God Mahavir. Dont forget to buy small hand woven umbrellas from the road. It costed around 30/- per piece.
The grandeur and intricacies of the marble sculptures cannot be expressed in words, a complete feast for the eyes, specially the main temple. Entry is free, temple opens at around 12 pm and closes at 6 pm. No cameras, cellphones or leather items allowed inside. Outside the temple, there are many shops and eateries for lunch/snacks.
