Jains consider themselves as either Digambar or Shwetambar depending on their belief. Both the sects consider this area as Sidhakshetra, meaning of which was described in previous post.
Jain temple shown above is situated just outside the royal enclosure, very near to Halol Gate. In fact standing at the temple’s main gate one can see minarets of Sahar Ki Masjid in East and the mighty Pavagadh in the West.
This temple is dedicated to Shri Chintamani Parshwanath God, Shri Padmawati Devi Goddess & Shri Manibhadra Veer Dev. The entire complex houses a Dharmshala or Guest house, a Jain restaurant and gardens.
Roofs are also painted with various scenes from Jain beliefs:
Due to strict timings and discipline maintained in Jain temple complexes, I missed my lunch, and hence my jain menu. I am not sure if I was allowed in Jain restaurant at all...! And there are hardly any restaurants in Champaner!
