During my holidays in Delhi, I had visited the giant Red Fort complex and this beautiful temple is located across the street bang opposite the Red Fort complex. The color of the temple is red and had beautiful traditional architecture with intricate carvings on the walls and the tall temple dome which is common with Jain temples in India. This place is definately worth a quick stopover while visiting Red Fort complex.

The temple will bring you closer to idea of jains. No violence, no leather and no photos inside. It's nothing very-very special (if you compare to e.g. Ranakpur jain temple), but being around the Red Fort and not go there it's a loss in your tour experience

This Temple is situated across the road from the Red Fort, in Old Delhi in the Chandni Chowk. It's red turrets are a landmark as they stretch skywards and feature in the skyline.

There is a bird hospital, where birds are treated on a daily basis, within the Temple.

Sadly we there when the Temple was not open, it closes between 12.00 and 18.00, it was still worth a visit.

We were staying at a hotel in the Bicycle Market and could see this temple from the rooftop. We dropped in to investigate what it was when walking back from the Red Fort after the (terrible) sound and light show. There were almost no other visitors there.

It's worth being aware before you go that you cannot to into a Jain temple if you have any leather on you - so belts, shoes, and even watch straps would need to be removed.

I don't really understand Jain Temples very well - I've not been to enough to 'get' the key elements of the faith - but I found this place peaceful and very interesting. They also have a bird hospital which is fascinating. In a city where the homeless live in great poverty, there's something intriguing about a hospital that treats the humblest of our feathered friends.

Well worth dropping in. No fees as far as I recall but I recommend a donation.

The nearest metro station to this temple is Chandani Chowk. The temple is very beautiful and peaceful, made of red stones hence the alias Lal Mandir. There is a free bird hospital within the premises. A Jain book store too is located within the premises.
