Jain temple is one of the oldest temples in Bikaner, and was built in the 15th century. It is decorated with mirror work, frescoes and leaf paintings. The temple is built of red sandstone and is divided into three floors. One can see the skyline of Bikaner by climbing to the topmost floor of this temple. It is believed that the temple was made with 40,000 kilograms of ghee instead of mortar, which locals insist seeps through the walls on hot days.

What a surprise! This is a gorgeous wee temple with intricate painting throughout. The time it took to decorate is hard to imagine. Enjoyed speaking with the Brahmin, very pleasant gentleman, the 31st generation to care for the temple. Such history!

Rated as the second best Jain Temple after Ranakpur and it is easy to see why. Access straightforward even to inner sanctum but the excellence of the carving especially on the internal pillars is intricately detailed and very fine.

We were in Bikaner and guide suggested this temple. There are many Jain temples in Rajasthan and this is one more. Worth a visit only if time is available.

We really liked our visit to Bikaner's Jain Temple: it is beautiful! All paintings are stunning plus the priest was very kind and showed us around. We preferred this visit rather than Bikaner's fort. So if you are around make sure to pop-in!

Compared to the Jain remote at Jaisalmer, it's an ugly place. Over modernised. Only thing is free. Ten minutes ought to do the visit.
