The Jain Mandir in Sanganer is known across the world or its exquisite carvings—that are quite similar to the ones adorning the beautiful Dilwara Temple of Mount Abu. Located at a distance of 16 km from the thriving city of Jaipur, Sanganer is a small town dedicated to historical monuments and places of religious significance.
The sculptures and carvings of the Jain Mandir had been built in phases and are reputed for their towering shikharas and spires. Representing some of the finest and oldest styles of architecture, this temple was finally constructed in the 10th century. Also known as “Laal Mandir”, this temple is built in red stone and is noted for its image carvings. The inner temple or the nij-mandir is a shrine built in stone and is popular for its three beautiful pinnacles. Right in the center of this shrine is the idol of Parshwanath—complete with the hoods of seven serpents!
