Thsi was the first temple we visted in India and it was nice to see but we saw many grander ones during our 19 day tour. It was also odd how it was partially covered with a plastic canopy.

By Indian standards this little temple is a little underwhelming, but it is still heavily frequented and used. It has quite a nice view from the rear. It would be worth attending with someone who understands and can explain a little about Jain culture.

Even after visiting this place, my understanding of these people is still only surface deep. But just sitting in the courtyard observing their actions, surrounded by such beauty is quite an experience.

This is a working Jain temple, so one needs to respect their religious customs. No shoes - hence useful to bring some socks - and shoulders and knees need to be covered. We were not allowed to enter the inner sanctuary and could only view from the doors.

We loved it. There were people to explain the meaning. Felt at peace. Jainism is the oldest religion which welcomes all without any rules. For respect, we ensured we wore long top and trousers.

Basically, this is a sect based upon the worship of idols. They do not allow women on the premises during a certain time in their monthly cycle. One of the five tenets of their beliefs is celibacy, which makes one wonder how they continue.
