The Digambar Jain Temple is opposite the Red Fort along Chandni Chowk. Connected to it is the Charity Bird Hospital where complimentary care is provided for injured or sick birds. The Bird sanctuary is also open to the public. Jains believe in the sanctity of all life and are strictly vegetarian. The Temple is only open in the morning hours... More

When entering the temple a guard told me I wasn't allowed to go in with my leather handbag. Rather than handing it over to a complete stranger I told him I wouldn't bother visiting and then he said I could go in anyway. I had never been in a Jain temple before so it was interesting learning about their religion.... More

The Mallinath Digambar Jain Temple is located in the Shirad Shahapur village of Aundha Nagnath taluk. This temple has a 300 year old statue of Lord Mallinath that was at first kept at Ardhapur. This idol was moved from Ardhapur to this site by Bhattaraka Shree Premanand, after seeking permission from the Nizam. He wanted to shift the idol to... More

Beautiful interior, and lots of activity as people go about their daily prayers- lots of bells ringing and rice being given as offering. Next to the temple there is a bird hospital. Jains believe in the preservation of all life, so they care for birds whose wings have been broken, etc. Give yourself about 45 min. to see the temple... More

Went here in the morning when a live discourse was taking place. A crowd of about 200 people were chanting hymns together. It really felt like an out-of-the -world experience. If you visit Old Delhi, do visit this temple. They claim that all the artwork is done in real gold.
