Indraprastha Tirth Jain Swetamber Temple
Near Kinari Bazaar at the end of Naughara Gali amidst colorfully painted houses (especially their facades) lies the other Jain temple of the walled city known as Johari temple but belonging to the other sect of Jainism, Swetamber. This sect believes that salvation or moksha can be achieved while wearing clothes (only white) unlike the other sect who believes that a person should not wear clothes and be sky-clad in order to achieve moksha.

Though additions were in different periods, this ancient temple is said to predate every other structures in Delhi. It belongs to the period of Pandavas, the heroes of the Indian epic Mahabharta who were the devoted followers of Lord Neminath Bhagwan.

The devotional area of this white marble double storeyed temple is on the first floor. The unique attraction of it is a remarkably different carved black image of Lord Parasnath, the 23rd Tirthankara made up of the rare 'kasauti' stone. It is placed on a marble pedestal, covered by an ornately carved golden canopy. The main shrine area has images of Lord Sumatinath, the 5th Tirthankara, Lord Adinath the first Tirthankaras and Lord Ajitnath along with the images of other Tirthankaras around the temple. The interior of the temple has decorative arched entrances and intricate paintings adorned with solid gold filigree work.

Apart from these, the visitors should not miss the two silver locked gates in the temple. The first silver gate at the top of staircase has a stone, representing Lord Bhaironji, who keeps evil forces away. The face of the stone is made up of silver and has a gold crown kept under a golden canopy. The other silver gate has small images of Tirthankaras bedecked with precious gems and stones.

The other attractions of this splendid house of worship are the glass mosaic describing the life of Lord Mahavira and some beautiful mural paintings of dancers and musicians on the second floor resembling to the Mughal style of painting.

Managed by Shri Jain Swetamnia Temples & Paushal Charitable Trust, the temple also has a small museum functioning at the ground floor. The museum houses rare manuscripts, old miniature paintings in gold and several objects made up of pure silver and copper.
