Katraj Jain Temple, Pune

(4.6/5 based on 170 reviews on the web)
Appreciate an impressive metal statue in a white marble shrine surrounded by turquoise pools at Katraj Jain Temple, a famous Jain pilgrimage site on a hillock on the highway between Satara and Pune. This large, clean temple features a 3.6 m (12 ft) tall gilt statue of Lord Mahavira made of "panchadhatu", a traditional five-metal alloy of sacred significance, which weighs around five tons. Enjoy the exquisitely carved pillars and long corridors of this shiny, palace-like complex surrounded by greenery.
