Oldest Jain temple of Bikaner Great historical place and beautiful art Bhandasar Jain temple is built before Bikaner establishment. While laying the foundation, a fly fell in butter, which was fired by Seth Bhandashah and rubbing it on his shoes. The Chief Artisan, after assuming Seth as a misdemeanor, laid the foundation of the temple with butter. Even today, the foundation of the temple gets butter. Seth had soaked the butter soaked with his shoes that ants did not die on their feet.
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.
