Beautiful temple

The serene atmosphere and the complexity of the decorative carving in this amazing temple are beyond compare. But it is best to arrive early - It can get very crowded.

Although relatively busy, in terms of tourist number, the jain temple has a special calming energy about it. Informative and architectural spectacular. Definitely worth a visit!

great place to see, and if you're interested they offer an audio guide that is really helpful if you want to understand the architecture and history of the place. most of it is accessible to everyone, a small part is saved for worshipping

Might be a spiritul place for the Jain people - but there was no special feeling or atmosphere for us! An artistic and amazing " monument" and if you are close by a must visit is for sure recommended. The extravagant building display the wealth of the Jain people Less than hour needed for visit
