“Oh my goodness”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 23, 2013

I thought I'd seen all the glitz that India could offer when it comes to temples, forts and palaces but this place takes pride of place. Highly decorated with not only mirrored tiles, but brightly coloured mosaic work, gilt ceilings, tiled floors plus a multi coloured community hall this place is amazing. A must see if you like photography (although photographs are only permitted on the outside of the buildings)

“Absolutely Peaceful”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 19, 2013

Probably it was the timing, and I visited the place during noon. It is peaceful and wonderful. Must visit, if you want some time away from the chaos and rush of the place.

“An excellent memory of Our visit”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 30, 2013

We were nearing the end of our trip to India and to be honest suffering from Temple fatigue but we were told this was a “Not to be missed” so on our last full day we visited. Well, what a treat, visibly different from all the other Temples we had seen and we were made very welcome and shown round the complex. The colour, details and sheer joy of life that exudes from the main building and the outer area and gardens was a pleasure. The temple is flamboyantly decorated with glass mirrors, semi precious stones and bright paintwork and this theme continues throughout this peaceful spot. We enjoyed a detailed explanation of the Jain religion and it left us with an extremely good memory of our visit. Go and Enjoy
