Situated in Chandni Chowk, opposite to the Red Fort, it was built in 1656 and houses a Birds Charity Hospital. Dedicated to the 23rd Tirthankara Lord Parashvanath, it welcomes the pilgrims with Manastambha column that stands at the entrance. On the first floor of the temple is the main devotional hall. The temple is adorned with shrines of the great Lord Mahavir, who was a Prince born in 599 BC in Vaishali city known today as Bihar. The temple also imbibes the statues of Lord Adinath and Lord Parasnath, who succeeded Lord Mahavir. The architecture of the temple has beautiful carvings in red sandstone and boasts of decorative paintwork. People of all religions can meditate and pray here.

Historical Context: The Sri Digambar Jain Lal Mandir is known for a mysterious tale. Once Mughal Emperor Aurangzeb had the musical instruments and nagara drum sounds that emanated from the temple stopped as it disturbed him. After this order, the Emperor still heard the musical sounds and had it checked. The loyal servants returned only to tell him that the instruments were playing by themselves and even today this mystery has never been solved or revealed.
