Feel the influence of the mystical Jain temple at Jain Temple - Kolkata. A major tourist attraction in Kolkata, as well as one of the most important Jain temples, it was built by a Jain named Rai Badridas Bahadoor Mookim in 1867. Witness a lamp burning with ghee inside the sanctum sanctorum, which has been continuously burning ever since the commission of the temple. The deity of Lord Shitalnathji is seated there as well, and his diamond forehead is a famed attraction. See the lavishly decorated interiors with mirrors and glasses abundant, along the intricately paved marble floor.
