  • Marvelous, intricate wooden sculptures. Every small, complex figurines sets up the entire scene (which they are trying to convey) very well. The downside is that, the temple is not adequately maintained or staffed. Overall, it is worth a visit.

  • If you have been in Ajmer you should consider visit at this beautiful temple. It's really amazing. Have a look at the photos.

  • Rs 10 entrance fee, rs2 shoes keeping fee, need to entre bare footed, Not nicely maintained building but main attraction point is well preserved in glass. Looks like made of pure gold.

  • Entry 10 per person. Very good depiction of jain culture and history. Request management to improve upkeep and cleanliness. Restoration required for attracting tourists.

  • No words for the great art work. Atleast Once visit. Part of Jainism can be clearly understand as words turned into great art. Charges are very nominal which are actually required to maintain the decoram of the place and to prohibit the entry of unsocialistic peoples. The time taken to built up this was very previous in terms of preparing this which will keep an eye live forever on jainism.
