Dedicated to the 15th Jain Tirthankara, Dharmanatha, Hutheesing Jain Temple is a stunning piece of architecture with exquisiteness written all over. The construction of the temple was started by a rich trader Hutheesingh and was completed by his wife in 1848 after his sudden demise. It is believed that the total cost of construction was over a million dollars.

Apart from the principal shrine, there are 52 shrines dedicated to different Jain Tirthankaras. Clean and beautiful courtyards, ornamentally carved pillars and mesmerizing dome supported by 12 beautiful pillars are the outstanding features of the temple. Another notable attraction of the temple complex is the 78 ft. high Mahaveera Stambha (also called Manastambha or the Column of Honour) with extremely charming design. Photography is prohibited inside the temple’s shrines, but you can definitely capture the marvellous exteriors.

Road: Located close to the Delhi Gate, the temple has excellent road connectivity. Roads in Ahmedabad and Gujarat are among the best across India. You can use local transport facilities like public transport buses, cabs, auto-rickshaws and cycle-rickshaws to be at the temple.

Railway: About 3 km. from the temple is Ahmedabad Railway Station, known for excellent rail connectivity with major cities of the country. Auto-rickshaws and cycle-rickshaws are the cheapest and most convenient modes from station to temple.

Airway: Ahmedabad’s international airport is in the close proximity, about 7 km. from the temple. As you leave the airport terminal, you can easily find taxis and auto-rickshaws offering transfer services to the temple.
