If you are in the old city area then must visit this place .... They say 45000 kilo of clarified butter was used in the foundation of this temple due to lack of water in the area and during summers you can feel it on the floor..overall good architecture ..giving 4 stars as i have been to Jaisalmer jain temples as well and those are grand architectural marvels so compared to that this wasnt matching to that expectation but if hvnt visited then and visiting this place the. You will be awestruck

This was the first temple which allowed to take picture, unlike Jain temple of Mount Abu or any other temple of the world for that matter. And man, its mesmerizing. Such an old temple, so well maintained and looked after. The priests are kind and open minded. The architecture is beautiful, beyond words. You gotta see it for yourself to experience it..

Extravagently decorated
Jan 2020
The Jain population of Bikaner has thinned, so the visitors to this temple are largely tourists. Compare it to the Laxmikant Temple next door, which is full of people. Bhandasar is unusual as Jain Derasars go, since it has paintings all over the walls, which makes the whole ambiance very colourful

Excellent carving work on marble. It’s an ancient Jain temple. It’s a home for fine art sculptures. You must visit.

Temple in Pink
Oct 2019
This is perhaps the only Jain Temple built with red sandstone instead of the usual Marble, in deference to the wishes of the King.
The lovely architecture comprises of both Jain and depiction of events from Hindu mythology. The pillars are beautifully carved with intricate inlays. Must visit place.

Insight into Jainism at temple
Nov 2019
After removing our shoes we entered the temple (no leather items allowed). The priest gave us detailed information, including the use of ghee when building the temple, and was very proud of his temple. Within the temple was beautiful artwork and carvings. Well worth a visit.
