Located just opposite to the Red Fort, this is one of the most respected and oldest Jain temples in India. Inside very peaceful and well maintained.

I didn't find anything which needs a mention to visit this place. Its a simple temple that's it. Don't visit unless you find it important.

I never heard of the Jain until my trip here. As I was walking across the street after leaving the Red Fort, I felt an inner pull to cross the street and go to this Temple. I am glad I did. As I removed my shoes inside I felt the sacred vibe sweep over me and I entered. It was... More

Honestly, I wasn't too sure what to expect having never been in a Jain Temple before, but the artwork and the beauty and the work that was done in here is just a feast for the eyes. As a photographer I wanted to take pictures, but that isn't allowed, so I didn't. It isn't very large, but visit all the... More

We came here on the same day we went to the nearby Sikh temple. Here there is an animal hospital, and down some stairs, hidden Jain deities in an odd underground cavern-like place. (Someone there showed us the stairs.) Even though it was not much to look at, I found it mysteriously powerful. But, I must admit I am always... More

Although Delhi is a moving catastrophe, the Jain Temple is an oasis from the chaos. My jaw dropped when I saw what they were displaying inside this amazing building. It was a gold diorama of the religious history of Jainism. You can google image it to see how spectacular it is. There are flying gold chariots and no less than... More
