  • The most important thing about this place cannot be put in words. It is the feel of the place, the atmosphere of peace in the middle of a busy metropolis is striking but a poor description. You just have to experience it. Physically it is a delightful cloistered temple with a central inner sanctum. Striking Sitting statues, I think of the great gurus or saints of the religion are in an arcade of shrines around the cloisters with more in the inner temple. Devotees walk around the cloisters stopping at each shrine and ringing a bell on each of the four sides. The physical description as I say is wholly insufficient explanation. Do go there.
  • Speechless beautiful derasar. Very nice food arrangement. Peaceful place. Good place for meditation. Very nice facility for stay. Loving staff. Huge museum.what to say more ? Must visit with kids
  • Ancient Jain Derasar, Must see intricate carvings. Life carved out of stones. Even the saree embroidery and Eye pupils detailed in the statues....
  • Temple with a magnificent view. It is a heritage Jain Temple of Ahmedabad. Famous among national and international travellers for it's truly amazing stone art work and sculptures. It's a must visit place in Ahmedabad. Camera is not allowed in the main temple but you can take photos from outside.
  • Temple is good. It needs to be maintained and upgraded. I appreciate the philanthropy in Hutheesingh family.

Where to stay in Ahmedabad

You'll find a large choice of accommodations across the sprawling urban area of Ahmedabad. Rental accommodations, simple family-run guesthouses, youth hostels, and hotels in formerly residential blocks appear throughout the city, with more established options the closer you get to the river, and the suburban parts offering the most cost-effective choices. On the river's westerly bank sit its main hotels, with a good selection of standard and upmarket options along Paldi Road and those around it.
