Tijara Jain Mandir, Jaipur Reviews
Always a peaceful experience visiting there. Also visit nearby temples which are equally beautiful.. :)
Known as an Atishaya Kshetra (Place of Salvation), Tijara Jain Temple is situated 110 Km away from Delhi and 55 Km from Alwar on the Delhi-Alwar Highway. It is a popular pilgrimage site for the Jains and a place of great interest for the ancient history lovers. WHAT TO FIND THERE? During an excavation in 1956 the main deity of Chandra Prabhu, the eighth Tirthankar was found and the temple was established. The 15 inches idol of Chandra Prabhu in Padmasana Mudra looks very beautiful and is made of white marble. This idol was installed on the 3rd day of Vishakha Shukla V.S 1554, as per the inscription. Later another 8 inches black idol of Chandra Prabhu was discovered in the similar lotus position in the year 1972. This was found under the expert supervision of Pujya Acharya Nirmal Sagarji Maharaj. The place regained as a pilgrimage after both the idols were installed. The temple is rectangular in shape which gives a beautiful look to its architecture with a sky-high pinnacle. The big hall inside has a capacity to hold 2000 persons at a time. The interiors were done beautifully with glass work and colorful paintings depicting the mythological stories. There is a strong belief that all the prayers done with true intensions were answered here and the ‘Kundli Dust’ even work like a remedy for all the sorrows and disease. BEST TIME TO VISIT This beautiful temple can be visited anytime in the year and is open to everyone.

This place has very old Jain Digamber Mandir (approximately 200 years old) and situated in Alwar district. Winters (November to March) is the preferred time to visit this place. This place is also famous for Pickles and Namkeen. This is approximately 100km from central Delhi (Cannaught Place, New Delhi).
