Kanch Mandir - Review
In the middle of a busy market is a spot for complete peace and allure. Translating into 'Temple of Glass', the Kanch Madir is made up entirely of glass and mirrors. The walls, ceiling, floor, pillars and doors of this Jain temple are all made of glass. The idol of Lord Mahavira is made of black onyx, and is decorated with multi-coloured glass beads. Chinese glass lamps and cut glass chandeliers add to the charm of this unique temple. There are around 50 murals in the temple, depicting the various stories of Jainism, which are all made on glass too. This temple was surely made to dazzle onlookers by its brilliant beauty.

Kanch Mandir, Indore Reviews
Excellent Place. Also known as Kaach Mandir ( Temple of glass) . The unique feature is that even the floors are also made of pieces of glass. Walk carefully as there could be intermittent broken glass pieces. Photography is strictly no no. There are no entry charges however the shoe shop may charge you 10 bucks if you decide to keep your luggages there.
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.
It's beautiful..!! Peaceful... All wall are.. made up from "kaanch" . must visit if you are around it. not allowed to capture pictures inside. bads are also not allowed.
Wonder place,u 'll love to see it if u r visiting it first time. Amazing architectural work..
It is one of the unique things in the world. Entirely made of glass it is a Jain temple and can be visited by anybody. You won't find much parking space as it is in rajwada.
