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.

Excellent support, information and communication in advance of tour. Tour is reasonably good with pricing. Lodging and food and guide was beyond our expectations. The choice to hire "My Bharat Holidays" was superb. The variety of experiences were well planned. This was an amazing experience for our group
I surely recommend them. I had a conversation with Chef Pradeep. He took my order on call and understood my requirement regarding what design I would like to have on cake. And he suggested me the Cake flavours. And it was impressive when I saw the cake and more impressive when everyone praised it as well. It was the same day in afternoon I ordered the cake and received it in evening. Anyone who is even running short of time. Should not worry. These guys are professional enough to deliver what exactly you want on time.
High time government should get it renovated. Looks pretty good though :)
Oldest wholesale and retail market for your daily needs with reasonable rates and landmark building
great historical value....but lack of maintainance... this place could have been made a tourist place but Gujarat government doesn't care about this great piece of architecture and historical value...
