If you are looking for peace and solitude, it's a great place to visit. I always find Jain temples a great place to meditate. This temple also has great historical importance as throngs of devotees flock here.

The oldest temple in Delhi, it is a must see place for any visitor of Delhi. The community which believes in non violence is very conscious of removing the suffering of human beings , animals and birds . The bird hospital treats thousands of birds every year . In a crowded and noisy place you can enjoy peace and tranquility in this temple .

I had visited this temple during my vacation in Delhi. This is the oldest Jain temple in Delhi and is located directly across the road from the Red Fort in the historical Chandni Chowk area. This is a beautiful temple built out of red sandstone. We found a bird hospital in the compound which treats around 15,000 birds in a year. The temple is open from 5:30 am to 11:30 am and 6:00 pm to 9:30 pm during summer and from 6:00 am to 12:00 pm and 5:30 pm to 9:00 pm during winter.

Also known as Lal Mandir, this Jain temple was build in mid 16th century. The wall paintings are quite intriguing. There is also a bird hospital in the vicinity.

We went to the temple after seeing the Red Fort which is directly across the street. This area is very busy and congested area, so the peace and quiet of the temple and courtyard was very nice. The temple is very unique with many alters. It could use a renovation as the once glorious ceilings and walls are fading. It was a nice stop.

Delhi has been a centre of Jain Religion from ancient times & the Digamber Jain Temple opposite the Red Fort is one of the oldest constructed in 1658.This Temple also known as `Lal Mandir`is on the Netaji Subhash Marg in Chandni chowk.Since its construction it has undergone many alterations.The stone pillars & ceiling looks very beautiful with paintings & carvings.Please check up the the Temple opening times before you go also please be aware that you have to leave behind all your items made from leather including your purse.No photography is permitted.There is also a book shop for Jain literature & also library.

The most notable part of the temple is the animal hospital located inside which medically treat,tend & look after wounded animals & birds.In fact i decided to visit this Temple only after a personal experience concerning a wounded animal.Sometime back i had found a wounded cow lying on the road in our locality & i decided to ring up this temple/hospital.Within a short time a transport with a veteranary doctor came & took it away.Later i visited the hospital & found the cow recovering fast.My hats off for their kind services!

This beautiful Jain temple, built when Chandni Chowk was built by Shahjehan in the 17th century is right opposite world famous Red Fort. Its architecture is superb and you can see artistic carvings in the stone on pillars and arches. The ceiling of the main temple at the first floor is simply superb with exquisite paintings. Within the compound of this temple is a charity bird hospital where sick birds are treated in the Jain spirit of love for all life, non-violence and help to every form of life.
A word of caution. Leather articles like belts, purses are not allowed inside the temple. Leave it outside. Inside the main temple photography is prohibited. There are timing schedule for the temple and get to know these before hand to avoid inconvenience. We reached there around 5 in the evening and were told that it opens only at 5.30 in the evenings. Within the campus there is a library and shop for Jain literature, both ancient and modern.
Overall an impressive temple.

The Digambar Jain Temple is opposite the Red Fort along Chandni Chowk. Connected to it is the Charity Bird Hospital where complimentary care is provided for injured or sick birds. The Bird sanctuary is also open to the public. Jains believe in the sanctity of all life and are strictly vegetarian. The Temple is only open in the morning hours and you must leave all leather products outside; therefore, plan ahead and leave any leather wallets or purses at your hotel.

The public area of the temple is not expansive but beautifully decorated. The style dramatically contrasts with that found in the mosques in the same area.
