This is probably the least beautiful Jain temple I've ever seen, but it's peaceful. I wasn't there quite at the right time for the pigeon feeding, unfortunately.

If you're slow tourists as we are, this is a great calm place in Fort Kochi to watch people. Visit around 12:30 for the feeding of the pigeons.

Possibly being unfair but when we went we had to leave all our gear in a small room. Had some expensive stuff in our bag so didn't like to leave it. My wife went in while i waited but she soon returned. You have to have someone show you round and it requires a bit of a wait. We decided... More

The temple itself is no big deal but the daily 12:15pm mass pigeon feeding is a hoot! Quite a spectacle and the birds will come up and eat from your outstretched hand if you ask the nuns and monks for a dollop of rice and corn.

Being a Jain, this was a visit i looked forward to. A 112 year old temple is simple and very peaceful. The office staff are helpful in providing tips and guidance. It caters to a small community but yet its doors are open to everyone, irrespective of your belief. If you want to see something interesting be there by noon,... More

Be aware that you must remove your shoes to enter the Temple and leave all your bags/cameras etc in the adjacent office area (left at your own risk). A lady in the temple provided some information about it and the various small statues. Allow about 15 minutes for your visit.
