Jain Temple Bhandasar, Bikaner Reviews
Impeccable art inside the temple..must visit place. This is a 400 year old Jain temple just located besides Lakshmi Nathji Temple. Legend has is it that the material for building this temple is included 500 tonnes of Desi Ghee for the foundation. This temple in the blazing heat of May and June throws an aroma of Pure Ghee. you can literally smell it inside the temple. The sculptures inside the temple can give you goosebumps. There is absolutely no mercy given in detailing. you can count the details and yet the details will count your imagination less brain.
An liveable art in side .in built time of temple ghee is used in place of water.
Must see in Bikaner. Stunning colour and paintings. Very old but well kept. The priest inside is amazing and he can tell you all about the temple and Jain religion.
