“Jain Temple - Ornate”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 October 2013

This Jain Temple is very ornate and there is a board listing the "Do's and Don't" for Visitors.

It's very ornate with large elephant carvings. Photos are allowed of the exterior only and one must remove shoes before looking inside.

The Jain people do not eat onions or garlic so special food is normally prepared for them when visiting large hotels such as Holiday Inn, Goa.

Respect their right to prayers and peace.

“Oasis of calm”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 September 2013 via mobile

Very interesting, welcoming temple. Non-Jains cannot go into the temple interior, but take your shoes off (leave a small tip when you retrieve them) and walk around, go upstairs, and take pictures. Lovely place.

“For Architecture, Spirituality and History Lovers”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 August 2013

Full of color, I would have loved to have been admitted inside the temple but you are not allowed entry if you are not a Jain believer.

There is a list of rules to be observed as soon as you enter the temple but nothing more than you would expect as a courtesy to this religious place.

Photos allowed on the outer premises,

“Historical Temple Jain Temple”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 August 2013

The Jain temple near Malabar hill in Mumbai is located at Walkeshwar at ridge road near the famous Hanging garden. It is one of the notable old Jain temples in Mumbai. This temple is a perfect example of the artistic brilliance of that time.
It is nice temple.

It is a great temple to look at, on the Malabar side. Please note that you will not be allowed entry as a non-believer, so it is worth making a note of this
