India is truly a hub of diversity that boasts a rich heritage and spirituality. Jainism is one of the oldest religions that have found its roots in this diverse land. As a result, many Jain temples in India are built in different parts of the country.
Jainism is based on three main principles, namely non-violence (ahimsa), many-sided reality (anekantavada) and non-attachment (aparigraha).
Jain temples and tirtha (pilgrimage sites) are present throughout the Indian subcontinent, many of which were built several hundred years ago.
Many of these temples are classified according to Jain sects. Idols of tirthankaras are present in these temples. Many Jain temples are found in other areas of the world.
