Chandni Chowk, Delhi: 36 reviews and 91 photos
The principal Jain temple in Delhi, Shri Digambar Jain Lal Mandir, is also its oldest. It was built in 1656, during the reign of Shahjahan, and expanded a few times thereafter, particularly after India's independence when the shikaras (mountain domes) were added. The temple is commonly referred to as Lal Mandir (i.e. Red Temple) due to its red colour. Its interior contains rich decorations, including frescoes, but photography inside is not permitted (also note that shoes must be taken off before entering). This temple is famous for having a bird hospital on the premises.
