Falna Jain golden temple is a temple built at Falna near the famous Jain temple Ranakpur (Rajasthan). It is the first Jain golden temple that has been built in the country by the Jain community of Falna in Rajasthan (near Ranakpur). The specialty of the temple is that about 90 kg. of gold was donated by the people of the Jain community in the local region for the adoration of temple dome and idol. Shri Bhairon Singh Shekhawat, Vice-President of India inaugurated the temple and joined the installation ceremonies along with other celebrities. It is owned by the Jain Shwetambar Sangh of Khudala. It is a major attraction for Pilgrims. The temple belongs to Shri Shankeshwar Parshwanath Bhagwan. “Kanch Mandir” located below the main temple is also good where the walls are covered with small sizes of mirrors. Though it is small, but it is a beautiful place.

    The effort by people at Jain Square should be lauded. They have a delightful collection of devotional images and documents.
