Jain Temple Bhandasar, Bikaner

4.5
Take in the intricate details of Jain Temple Bhandasar, an unusually ornate place of worship. Paintings accented with gold-leaf adorn the interior walls, while the pillars supporting the structure tell the story of the lives of the faith's 24 historical teachers. Commissioned by a wealthy merchant in 1468, the building took some 56 years to complete, and remains very well preserved to this day. Venture to the third floor (note the porcelain floor tiles imported from Victorian England), where you'll witness exceptional views across the city and desert beyond. For travelers who use our world travel planner, Bikaner holidays become easier to arrange, with trips to the Jain Temple Bhandasar and other attractions mapped out and timetabled.

  • From outside, it looks an ordinary place but, as one enters, the beauty of the amazing artwork reveals itself. One should positively visit this temple if planning to go Bikaner. The priests are serving for 37 generations and would tell the interesting story about temple to devotees.
  • More than 500 years old temple. Even before establishment of Bikaner city. Very colourful interior. Absolutely no crowd when we visited in February.
  • If compared to Ranakpur or Mt Abu this temple is not that huge. Been said that this is a very beautiful temple with excellent carvings. This temple was build using 350 quintals of ghee and in extreme summer ghee still gets dropped from ceiling. Worth visiting. Preferably go by small car or auto as the approach road is congested as well as not so wide
  • The guardian of the temple (who also do the restoring and conservation work) is so kindly and wise.
  • An artistic temple built before the city was founded. Impressively, built with butter, instead of water!!
