“A Working Temple But Beware The Hawkers”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 March 2012

This Temple is in constant by worshippers and there is a wonderful atmosphere if you time your visit to coincide with any of the mass pujas. The sculpture around the buildings are worth close inspection, there is very little pressure to donate to any of the shrines within and you will avoid any arguments if you give 10 rupees to the attendant looking after your footwear (although there is no obligation to pay anything).

My only word of warning is that there are several hawkers lurking within the Temple seeking to take you to view the paintings in their shops - they will frequently attempt to explain some feature of the Temple before launching into the sales patter. A firm, early statement of no interest should suffice.

“Love,Peace and happiness!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 March 2012

We visited the Temple twice and in the first time everything was very calme, but the second time they were celebrating a festival and were very happy for every guest, they take you for a dance, for singing and clapping, you can take pictures and videos altough there is a sign that it is not allowed. In front of the Temple you can buy some flowers and fruits to give it to the gods and you have to take off your shoes, but if you try to adopt, they will accept you and celebrate with you!

“Jagdish Temple”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 March 2012

it is very nice and old style temple which is very near to city palace and cannot be missed, it is within old city and morning/evening Aarti makes its more interesting. It has a nice area to sit and enjoy the aarti, photography is not allowed inside the premises, but one can take outside shots which are quite interesting as well. The view from stairs is quite interesting.

“Hassley”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 March 2012

Temple Ok but spoilt by people trying the usual tricks and being very persistent. If you're pushed for time, leave it out. You'll get to see other Jain temples elsewhere
