In Delhi and its neighbor hood there are over 165 Jain temples. Delhi being the capital of India has its history which dates back to the time of Mahabharat or even before that. It has a very huge population of Jains that is spread all over the city.  We can find many Jain temples here. The details of these temples are  given  below:-

Digambara Jain  Lal Mandir ji

 Delhi, the capitol of India has number of Jain temples. After the independence the Delhi has expanded and number of new colonies have come up. Now there are over 165 temples within Delhi and its surrounding area. But There is one famous and oldest ancient Digambara Jain temple and is known as Lal Mandir.  It is just opposite of the Red Fort on the Netaji Subhas Marg, Chandni Chowk, Delhi. The temple was constructed in 1658 AD. It adds grace and sanctity to Delhi City.

The temple has undergone many modifications and additions and alterations during the past but still retains some of the original elements. The prayer chamber ceilings have been repainted. Fluted Shahjahani columns in white marble can also be seen.

 

Though not as ornate as the fine temples in Gujarat and Rajasthan, it does boast detailed carvings, and gilded paintwork in the antechambers surrounding the main shrine to Parshvanath, the twenty-third Ttirthankara, and the main idol that is placed on the Central alters. There are number of

idol of Tirthankars.

The other attraction at lal mandir ji is the bird’s hospital. The Jain Bird Hospital (free but donations are appreciated), in the temple courtyard, puts into practice the Jain principle that all life is sacred, admitting up to sixty sick birds per day. It serves as a rescue sanctuary for partridges, caught and wounded by fowlers and bought in bulk by Jain merchants who bring them here to recover, and there are separate wards for pigeons, parrots, sparrows (notoriously vulnerable to deadly whirring ceiling fans) and domestic fowl. Squirrels, who will not hurt the birds, are also treated here, but birds of prey are seen on a strictly outpatient basis, as they are not vegetarian. Most of the cages are home to pigeons with a disease that brings on paralysis. As their condition improves they are moved to larger cages closer to the roof, and eventually released.

In the ground floor level there is a big book store where one can get Jain literature and other items significant to Jain religion

Shri Digambar Jain Ratan tray Jin Mandir has been constructed recently.  The panch kalyanak ceremony (pran Pratishtha ceremony) took place during 6th -12th Feb'2014. The entire ceremony was blessed by Acharya 108 Shri Vidhya Nandji and his disciple Ailacharya shri Pragya Sagar ji in presence of  number of other jain munies gathered from all over northern region.

In this temple the main idol i.e Mool nayak pratima ji is of Lord Bhagwan 1008 shri Parshwa Nath ji which is a very ancient idol of nearly 1600 years old. This idol has been gathered from Karnatka. There are other about 250 idols of precious stones. Pure white marble has been used in the inner side furnishing and for constructing badi.

The other attraction is the kind of Sikhar ji which has been constructed over the temple. It is in the shape of Kalash (Pitcher). This temple is famous for miracles and thus it has been called as atishey mandir. Although in Dwarka mostly saline underground water is available but the water in the bore of this temple is very sweet and can be used without any treatment.

"Parshawasthali " Jain Mandir, Delhi Jaipur Road, Gurgaon Haryana

 

 

Location: This temple is situated on the main Delhi-Jaipur highway (NH-8), Gurgaon near 34th  mile stone from Delhi.

 

Description:- Most probably this is the only temple (probably in the world) with a 21 feet high standing statue of Lord Parashvanath in its true green colour. This idol is placed at the temple’s roof top for two reasons – first to help fellow Jains to be able to pay their obeisance to the Lord from far distance, even without going to a temple; second to educate others about ‘Jainism’, wherein all our saints (in their quest to become God) renounce all their worldly pleasures, including (among others) most of their meals and all their clothes.

 

This temple houses some of the finest works of art in the country. It is built over four floors:

  1. On the ground floor, there are idols of all the three “Chakravati” Lords (Lord Shantinath, Lord Kunthunath & Lord Arhnath) – these idols are made of “asht-dhatu”

  2. On the first floor, there are idols of all the five “Balyati” Lords (Lord Vasupujya ji, Lord Mallinath ji, Lord Neminath ji, Lord Parshvanath ji & Lord Mahavira ji) who renounced the world before tying nuptial knots;

  3. On the second floor, is the knowledge center cum meditation hall with a very intricately carved Ma Saraswathi’s idol;

  4. On the roof top there is a 21 feet high Lord Parshvanath ji statue.

                                                              Balyati Bhagwan

 

Shri Dinesh Jain, who is the promoter of the temple, has personally ensured that each & every idol that was created and the façade of the temple strictly adhered to the “Agam” (oldest prescribed Jain norms).

 

In keeping with the finest details, a well has been dug right near the temple to pull up water for the morning “prakshal” of the Lords.
