About Seth Bhandasar Jain Temple

Dedicated to the fifth Jain Tirthankara (founders of the Jain religion), Sumatinathji, the Jain temple in Bikaner is an architectural masterpiece built by a wealthy merchant Bhandasa Oswal in 1468. This 2-storied Jain temple is built out of red stone with yellow-stone carving and vibrant paintings. The temple complex includes Antarala, an Ardhamandapa, a Garbhgriha and a Mahamandapa. Detailed paintings adorned with gold leaf patterns can be seen on the pillars and walls of the ‘mandapa’ and ‘pancharatha.' It's surprising to know that the merchant used 40,000 kg of “ghee” instead of mortar to build the temple that trickles from the walls during extreme hot. The idol of Lord Sumatinath is beautifully carved out of white marble and stands on a throne in silver. The most striking feature of the Jain Temple is its pillars that are decorated with floral arabesque pattern and events depicting the lives of the 24 Jain Tirthankars. You would see beautiful images of dancing maidens and multi-colored floral designs on the walls and the floors. You can also enjoy mesmerizing views of the surroundings from the carved balconies of the temple. The colorful mirror-work will hold your sight for long.
