Jain Temple - Simandharaswami Jinmandir

This weekend we had been to Silvassa and Daman(detailed posts coming up soon). On NH-8, in Nandigram Thirti, in Nandigram Village is this Jain Temple. Dedicated to Simandhara Swami, this Shwethambar Jain Mandir was built in 1989.  There are other small temples as well in the campus.


 The temple is made of Marble with great intricate carvings.

 Jain devotees from across Gujarat and Maharashtra visit this place.
