Trip Planner: Asia / India / West Bengal / Kolkata District / Kolkata (Calcutta) / Parashnath Jain Temple
Feel the influence of the mystical Jain temple at Parashnath Jain Temple. A major tourist attraction in Kolkata, as well as one of the most important Jain temples, it was built by a Jain named Rai Badridas Bahadoor Mookim in 1867. Witness a lamp burning with ghee inside the sanctum sanctorum, which has been continuously burning ever since the commission of the temple. The deity of Lord Shitalnathji is seated there as well, and his diamond forehead is a famed attraction. See the lavishly decorated interiors with mirrors and glasses abundant, along the intricately paved marble floor.

A must see place.Would have given 5* had it been easier to locate.Similar names of many temples in the vicinity,add to it absence of prominent road signs finding it is a big task.But once you get there you feel your efforts are rewarded.Magnificiently cut mirror-work with precious gemstones makes it look out of the world.Simply beautiful.
Estd in 1810. On 6th Floor , Mulnayak Shri Amizara Parshvnathji. Pratima of Padmavati Devi also there. LIFT AVAILABLE.
