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.
