4.1
#22 of 55 in Historic Sites in New Delhi
Built in the 1650s, Jain Temple - Delhi houses a bird hospital set up to further the religion's principle of preserving life--all life. The hospital treats about 30,000 birds each year, admitting vegetarian avians and squirrels (predators enjoy an "outpatient" status). Don't forget to take your shoes off, and remove other leather items, before you enter the temple.

    For fans like me of temples white and Jains with etched in mind those of Mount Abu, this outside is not that impressive, indeed, however the first floor rooms are well worth a visit, especially if this is not the first time you come to Delhi.

    It is not a temple as suggested by Google but the office if Sthanakwasi Jain Conference. They have a Dharamshala here with a Bhojanalaya and also have a few firms who have rented offices here. If you are nearby and want food which tastes like home, this is the place to be at.

Where to stay in New Delhi

New Delhi contains some of India's finest and most popular hotels, catering to business travelers and well-heeled tourists. For budget accommodations, consider the neighborhood of Paharganj, just west of the New Delhi railway station. Noisy and packed with peddlers of every kind, the area offers some of the least expensive rooms located relatively near major attractions. Guesthouses serve as the city's best mid-range option, with new ones constantly springing up to satisfy the growing number of visitors. Always call or visit the website in advance to check on prices and amenities included.
