Everything Ornate | Jain Temple

These pictures were clicked at a Jain temple in a small town called Sujangarh, located 200km west of Jaipur in the Shekhawati region. This beautiful temple is a heritage Jain temple by the name of Shri  Devsagar Singhi Jain Mandir. The inaugural ceremony in 1915 was graced by Lord Charles Hardinge, then viceroy of India (Supreme head of India under the British colonial years before independence). The temple is owned and managed by a private family trust. This temple is dedicated to Sri Parshvnatha, 23rd Tirthankara out of total 24 and belongs to the Shwetambar sect of Jainism. Beautiful glasswork dominates the interiors, which is quite opulent and ornate. I’ll let the pictures speak for themselves.
