The Pareshnath Jain temple of Kolkata is one of the most revered and holy shrines of the Jains in Kolkata. The temple is known not only for its enthralling beauty but also for its spiritual atmosphere that attracts a lot of faithful devotees. Along with the interiors, the temple premise is also very scenic with a beautiful garden decorated with blocks of glass mosaics and silver European-styled statues. The temple is devoted to Pareshnath, who was the 23rd Jain Tirthankar. Besides the Pareshnath Temple, the temple complex also houses four other temples, devoted to four different holy preachers, who are regarded as Avatars by the Jains. One of the major attractions of the temple is a lamp, which is burning with ghee perpetually inside the sanctum sanctorum, since the inception of the temple in 1867.
