Kanch Mandir, Indore

(4/5 based on 200+ reviews on the web)
Wander around the unusual temple of Kanch Mandir. Built by prominent trader Sir Seth Hukumchand in the early 20th century, the structure's facade resembles a medieval mansion house. Step inside to discover walls, floors, and ceilings covered with glass panels and mosaics, to dazzling effect. You'll have to commit it all to memory, however, since photography is technically prohibited within the temple's glass walls. Put Kanch Mandir and other Indore attractions into our Indore trip itinerary maker, and watch your holiday take shape.

  • floor, wall and celling every thing made with glass work. very unique. .. must visit place in indore city.
  • When I went there I loved that place
  • This temple is a true jewel. Unfortunately, although the owners are finding its upkeep a challenge, do not miss a visit and plan a few hours of craning your neck as you try to absorb the work on the ceiling as well.
