Kanch Mandir, Indore Reviews

  • Truly beautiful temple with thousands of mirrors inside. Nothing like I’ve ever seen. Definitely worth a visit while in Indore. Definitely a shame you can’t take photos inside. The art (especially the heaven/earth/hell piece) was really astonishing. It turned out the doorman who ensured everyone removed their shoes before entering wanted some money at the end. I guess he was making sure no one stole them? We gave him 10 rupees and he looked a little disappointed.

  • One of the old jain temples of Indore. Located in the main city. It has glass and mirror pieces that makes the temple more beautiful.

  • It seems that by reflecting the person in every teaching, through mirror, it gives a message that this teaching is for you and you are everywhere, in everything. If you know yourself well, then you can know everyone, everything too. This becomes a message to the person about non- violence with compassion, as everything, everyone is your projection only. As non violence can happen with hate.

  • In this Jain Digamber Mandir inside walls are decorated with intricate glass work. Plese avoid visiting this temple around 10 in the morning as poojas are performed and only JAINS are allowed inside at that time. Photography inside the temple is strictly prohibited.

  • A temple of historical Importance for Indore. Near the famous hotspot Rajwada. It is also known as Sheesh Mahal and is famous for its beautiful architecture. The walls inside the temple have artwork of beautiful coloured mirrors and glasses. Should visit once if you are a Indori.
