About Jain Temple, Kochi
Unlike most other religious sites in the city, this temple is quite new, built only about a century ago in 1904. Its architecture was inspired by the temples in Gujarat. It is an elegant and simple building of beige exterior and marble interior. Inside, there is an idol of the Bhagawan Shri Dharamnath, the 15th Jain Tirthankar. Birds usually flock around in their hundreds, fed by the people at the temple. Palm trees shade the temple's courtyard.

Jain Temple, Kochi Reviews
Calm and quite place. During the noon time they feed birds here and it’s really nice to watch that. We can also participate in that. But the entry is limited for common people only during certain times . That is till 1:30 pm I guess.
The Jain temple is not far from Mattancherry jetty. It is a beautifully constructed temple worth visiting. A staff attached with the temple will give an introduction about the temple. Famous for pigeons doing parikrama of the temple and then having food
Jain religious place. Blessed far away from home.
We were there on 30/10/2017. We have reach there by 11:30 atleast. The temple authorities we really really warm and happy to explain the things to us. The let us to feed the pigeons. We were able to witness the event were pigeons rotate around the temple 3 times . Which will happen at around 12:15 every day
Great place. Cool and peaceful atmosphere. Iam a Hindu. Went there in a curiosity to know how it is like. Something similar to a Hindu temple.
