Katraj Jain Temple, Pune

4.5
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. With our custom trip planner, Pune attractions like Katraj Jain Temple can be center stage of your vacation plans, and you can find out about other attractions like it, unlike it, near it, and miles away.

  • One the best feeling of being spiritual. That's how places of meditation and prayer should be. But it's been quite a while since the place is under construction. One should speed up the process and finish it at once. I am pretty sure finance isn't the issue here. But an amazing experience and the atmosphere is always the best.
  • Very good place with basic stay facilities and Bhojanshaala. The Jain Temple is extremely beautiful, tranquil, peaceful and calm. The best part is all the Jain Scriptures along with Artwork have been written on the Temple Walls, which was very elevating. Parking space is available outside the Temple Premises.
  • Beautiful, Spiritual, Peaceful. One can get amazing view of Pune City from top on the temple. Food is simple, yet delicious.
  • Good place to visit during the day and it's an awesome view from where you can see the Pune from top of the temple. Nice place
  • Beautiful place with great pillars specially carved and sculptured with amazing statues. Big marble monuments and flooring too are amazing. From the top of the temple the whole Pune city is visible, great place to visit as a pilgrimage.
