Jain Temple Bhandasar, Bikaner

4.4
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.

  • We really liked our visit to Bikaner's Jain Temple: it is beautiful! All paintings are stunning plus the priest was very kind and showed us around. We preferred this visit rather than Bikaner's fort. ...  more »
  • Compared to the Jain remote at Jaisalmer, it's an ugly place. Over modernised. Only thing is free. Ten minutes ought to do the visit.  more »
