Babu Amichand Panalal Adishwarji Jain Temple

Mumbai (Bombay)

This temple is renowned among Jains for its beauty – given how beautiful Jain temples are, that’s saying a lot. Check out the paintings and especially the ecstatically colourful zodiac dome ceiling. It’s a small, actively used temple; visitors should be sensitive and dress modestly.
