Hathee Singh Jain Temple - Review

This temple is better known as the Hutheesing Jain Temple. It is the largest Jain temple of Gujarat. The temple was originally a plan of Sheth Hutheesinh Kesarisinh, a wealthy trader of Ahmedabad. He unfortunately passed away at an age of just 49 years and thus leaving the plan incomplete. This was thereby supervised and completed by his wife Shethani Harkunvar. It cost her lakhs of rupees, which was too huge an amount in those times. The temple was dedicated to the 15th Jain Teerthankar, Dharmanatha. The cost was estimated later to be more than a million dollar by the son of the trader Muggenbhai Hutheesing. The temple was built during a tragic famine condition in Ahmedabad and so, it gave a work opportunity to many poor people. It is since been maintained by the Hutheesing family Trust.

The architect was Premchand Salat. The temple was originally two storey. The idol of the prime deity is made of milk white marble that looks very beautiful. The main temple has 11 deities in it, 6 in the basement and the rest divided in the three- bay sanctuary. The main shrine is on the eastern side of the temple. The temple has a big dome roof supported by 12 ornate pillars. There are 52 shrines other than this, each having an idol of a teerthankara. There is also a line of shorter shrines adjoining the main temple on three sides. The most striking feature is a Manasthamba inspired from the Jain Manasthamba and the Kirtisthamba of Chittore, Rajasthan.

  • Good place with lot of traffic. People parking their vehicle in no parking and that's creating traffic. Traffic police should stand there to control it and this way we can maintained our historical place by clean and broad roads.

  • This is the old monument of ahmedabad city. In the same line many other gates are there. Each gate is their own value. Just good to see it.

  • It is the center of ahmedabad city where start heritage place. Near by locality also good.. people aproch for help every whenever you go there.

  • Proud of visiting India's prestigious heritage. Just have a few clicks. Else it doesn't have anything else

  • Delhi Darwaza or Delhi Gate was built when the king, Sultan Ahmed Shah built a wall surrounding the city of Ahmedabad. Initially there were around 33 small and big gates for elntry and exit. Later 13 of it were still visible. One of these gates was a gate used to go to Delhi, the capital of India. Present day it is surrounded by heavy traffic. And only portion of that marvel is holding it's name. Beauty is almost lost. I wish government would do something to preserve 600 plus year old monument of the world heritage city of Ahmedabad.
