Bhandasar Jain Temple

Bhandsar Jain Temple is one of the two most famous Jain shrines in Bikaner. Dedicated to the 6th Jain Tirthankara Sumatinath, it is a three-storied shrine that dates back to the 15th century. The temple is an epitome of Rajputana architecture and has marble pillars, gold leaf walls, intricately decorated ceilings and massive halls. The exquisite mirror work grabs special attention here. Apart from its architecture the utter silence and peace in the ambience is what makes it a great place to visit. You can spend hours marveling at its architecture and its tranquil environment.

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.
