Sri Digambar Jain is situated right opposite the Red Fort in Delhi. It is the oldest jain temple in Delhi dating back to the reign of the Mughal Emperor Aurangzeb. It was built in 1526 AD. It stands on the crossing of Netaji Subhas Marg and Chandni Chowk. It is close to Chandni Chowk. It is built in red sandstone (from which it gets its common name 'Lal Mandir' meaning Red temple). The temple was enlarged in the early 19th century.
