Jain Temple (Walkeshwar)

Location: Walkeshwar (Malabar Hill)
Built in:  1904.    
How to reach: One can easily reach Jain Temple by taking local Buses, auto-rickshaws or by hiring taxis from Mumbai

This is arguably the prettiest temple in Mumbai (indeed, Jain temples are generally the prettiest in India). If your itinerary does not include a visit to one elsewhere (the most famous being in Rajasthan), do make the time to visit Mumbai's. Members of the Jain community are known to be exceptionally adept in the world of business, and although they believe in self-restraint and aestheticism (orthodox Jains will not tread on an ant, and at their most extreme wear masks to avoid breathing in even tiny insects), they pour large sums into the construction and maintenance of their places of worship. Officially called Babu Amichand Panalal Adishwarji Jain Temple, this beautifully decorated and adorned temple has an entrance flanked by two stone elephants.
