It was a gold diorama of the religious history of Jainism. You can google image it to see how spectacular it is. There are flying gold chariots and no less than... More

This Jain temple and the bird hospital in its compound are amazing. You can go in and see the hurt and sick birds being cared for. The temple itself is also beautiful, and there's a meditation cave in the information center at the bottom. FYI you'll have to take your shoes off like most temples and mosques- here there is...

Located across from the Red Fort it stands out among the old city surroundings. If you have the time and interest you could brave the crowds for a visit.
