The Beautiful Jain Temples of Kolkata


Beautiful handpainted ornate ceilings inside the Pareshnath Jain Temple.


The caretaker in the temple alongside with a marble sculpture.


This Jain temple is made out of marble. You can take photos around and inside but not the main altar.


The temple’s structure has mirror-inlay pillars, the windows made of stained glass and the marble floors has a floral design. Its garden has blocks of glass mosaics and European statues, painted with silver paint.


Just outside, is a neighborhood totally in contrast with the polished beauty of the temple.


More mosaics made up of stained glass and mirrors.


The Pareshnath Jain Temple and some others that surrounds it.
