Jain Temple Travel

First Jain temple in South India is in Chennai, this temple is known as Shree Gujarati Swetamber Jain Mandir. Lord Parshwanatha, the 23rd Teerthankar is the presiding deity of this renowned shrine. The three gopurams and five doors of the Mandir have marble carvings based on the architectural principles of the famous Dilwara temples. Only marble has been used in the construction, and the architects, carvers and workers were brought in from Rajasthan. The idol is made of Quartz selected from the Chellur mines in Karnataka. The stone was considered special due to its green color, which, according to Jain scriptures, is the colour of God. Jain acharyas walk all the way to the Gujarati shwetambar Mandir from North India and stay here for 'Chatur Masa'. This is a must place to visit for all those visiting Chennai.
