Shantinath Mandir

Top choice in Gujarat & Diu

One of the largest Jain temples in the old town, Shantinath Mandir dates to the mid-17th century. Although the outside is classic white, the interior is a fairground of bright colours and recently restored, cartoon-like murals. It's one of the more memorable Jain temples in Gujarat.
