The two-storied Bhandasar Jain Temple is among the most enchanting Bikaner tourist attractions. Lavish and elaborate, the Bhandasar Jain Temple is dedicated to Sumatinath, the 6th Jain deity and offers a peaceful sanctuary for those on tours to Bikaner tourist attractions.
The ground floor of the Bhandasar Jain Temple mesmerizes you into a calm trance as your eyes rest on the white marble statue of Lord Sumatinath perched on a silver throne atop a 2 feet high pavilion.
Italian marbled floors and gold leaf work with floral patterns on the walls of the vaulted ground floor chamber of the Bhandasar Jain Temple give you a fair idea of the Jain love for luxury. Built by Bhanda Shah, a well-known businessman in medieval Bikaner, the Bhandasar Jain Temple oozes beauty, peace and aesthetic charm.
The massive pillared hall on the ground floor engages your attention with white marble pillars with colorful floral patterns and sandstone pillars with sculpted figures of graceful maidens.
The first floor of the Bhandasar Jain Temple is fairly simple though the second floor is a little elaborate and offers a sanctum for statutes of Jain deities. There are several artistically carved balconies on the first and second floors of the Bhandasar Jain temple that offers you sweeping vistas of glistening gold Bikaner.
