Built in 1914, the Shree Digambar Jain Paraswanath Temple of Kolkata is a very sacred place of worship for the Digambara Jain community. Digambara is one of the two main sects of Jainism - the other branch is Svetambara. This glorious red temple with its bright red entrance greet the pilgrims to the temple premise, which has four sprawling gardens surrounded by trees, hedges and flowering plants for the visitors to take rest and feel the oneness with nature. The pilgrims can also feed the hundreds of fish in the fish tank. Inscriptions preaching non-violence and other aspects of Jainism can be found throughout the Stambha.
