Amazing architecture! Fascinating immersion in Indian culture and to be precise into Jainism. Jainism is an ancient religion from India that teaches that the way to liberation and bliss is to live a life of harmlessness and renunciation.

This place is very peaceful. I would say it was a perfect stress release experience for me. Knowing the spiritual basic of this religion motivated me a lot on ways of living life. Interior is enormously beautiful. There is free entry. I would definitely visit next time whenever I am around this place.

This is a truly special place - beautifully crafted, the smell of incense and a place to get away from it all. Simply brilliant and most welcoming - free entry

This is a beautiful, interesting building, it is like another world when you go inside. We weren't sure about going into such a place as we aren't religious, but we were made to feel welcome and the displays gave us a real insight into Jainism. Don't miss this if you are in the area, it is free to go in... More

Situated on the Inner Circle Road, entering the Jain Centre, one enters a different world. The Temple is beautifully designed in traditional style - a very peaceful place of Indian (Jain) spirituality. Very interesting to watch the worshippers. We were warmly welcomed and appreciated the explanations spontaneously offered.
