  • Love Jain temples and this is fine example. There is a serenity that comes with the widespread use of white marble in both the building and the statuary. Also love "picking" out the precious and semi ...  more »

  • What a temple, What an architecture, Great. Most of the common public cannot really understand it's beauty. It's very serene and beautiful. It is so peaceful, away from typical city life, I can spend my life there. The place houses a museum on Jain culture and history which was place to visit, understand and learn.
  • This place is very beautiful . You can see the carvings on walls. The temple premises are clean and scented. Photography isn't allowed. You will feel peaceful in visiting this place. You can also see old water harvesting system which is followed since last 200 years. Temple is made in 18th century but still well maintained and preserved.
  • Amazing historical place of the Ahmedabad city. Famous Jain temple includes a huge tall building. Must visit place. The tall building in its premises is wonderful to visit. It's cylinder shaped building and has steps to climb and then you reach at the top where there are small temples. It has four small windows, where you can breathe the fresh air. The main temple is surrounded by small temples. The entrance has a huge space and the door is of too unique. The holy chants here make you feel good. It's the clean and neat place. Due to marble flooring, it's always cool place you will feel. Photoshoot can be done outside the temple. I use to visit a lot during my childhood.
  • Beautiful temple. So peaceful. Stunning carvings. I'm glad I got to visit this place. Would recommend to friends. Tip: Do not get lured into the next door art gallery... it's not really worth visiting in my opinion though the 20 rupee entrance is not a lot so feel free to support the local community.
  • A very famous Jain Temple constructed in 1850 A.D. Photography inside the temple is not allowed. You can take pictures only from the outside. It's a calm and quite place.
