Hatheesing Jain Temple

HATHEESING JAIN TEMPLE

This elegant temple created out of white marble was built in 1848 A.D. by a rich merchant Sheth Hutheesing as a dedication to the 15th Jain Tirthankar, Shri Dharmanatha. Located outside the Delhi Gate, the temple is spread over a sprawling courtyard, with a mandapa surmounted by a large ridged dome supported by 12 ornate pillars. The small garbhagriha (main shrine) on the east end reaches up into three stunningly carved spires and is encircled by 52 small shrines dedicated to the various Tirthankars.
