The work that is being done here is wonderful. Everything is being renewed in the traditional manner and the craftsmanship is superb. They are even grinding the special coloured mortar with two wonderful oxen.

This historical temple is within the city. It has two eye-catching monuments- main temple and a maan stambh. It was constructed by Seth (wealthy businessman/trader) Hathisinh Kesarisinh Jain to help artisans at time of famine in 1848 or so. He died early and his wife saw to it that it gets completed. It is said that it was constructed at price of 8 lakh at that time. The architect is said to be Premchand Salat. It appears that inspiration for temple is taken from Bavan (52) devre of Kumbhalgarh and Delvara Jain temples. It appears that there is some significance of number 52 that is why this number has influenced design of jain temples (for example bawangajastatue of Adinathji). The main deity in the temple is of 15th Tirthankar shri Dharmanathji. This and a temple at Mattancherry Kochi are perhaps the only two jain temples dedicated to fifteenth tirthankar. The stambh seems to be inspired by Kirti stambh of Chittaurgarh.
As it is expected one is not allowed to wear shoes and no photographs are allowed inside. However, one can take snaps of front view and stambha. Both are very beutiful. When we visited the temple a major front part was under repair so it was covered with tarpaulin and polythene sheets. The inside too had very delicate carving in marble and a yellow stone that is perhaps from Jaisalmer.
I missed idol of Osia mata and basement that readers may cover during their visit.

Being in Ahmedabad for almost a decade had visited Jain temples at Girnar, palitana, Taranga,Shankheshwar and many other places in Gujarat.
Only a visit to this temple made me realise the uniqueness of its built and sculputure and what sets it apart from other jain temples.
Besides temple they have also for visitors a museum open all days except Monday at a token nominal fee of Rs.20/-.It is worth a visit.
Visit to feel and soak in the ambiance of this Jain temple.
Location is on main road and easily accessible.Parking is free and available but photography inside temple is prohibited.Outside temple photography allowed.
Enjoy.

Almost 170 year old temple is an architectural marvel and treat to your senses. Beautiful carvings and peaceful ambience makes it a must visit in Ahmedabad. Exterior facade was partially hidden due to conservation work, but the interior courtyard-style temple setting with 52 jain deities is beautiful.

Last week I visited this place because there is devotional function at there invited by my neighbour.

Temple is very attractive because of it's architect. There is unique & sharp design. Temple ia constructed in 1848. The temple constructed originally planned by Sheth Nathisinh Kesarisinh. Tempel's carving is very very awesome .

There is kirti stambh at tempel's compound. It is also beautiful
