Sri Digambar Jain Mandir Delhi

Dedicated to Lord Parshvanath
Location Opposite Red Fort, Delhi

Sri Digambar Jain Lal MandirSri Digambar Jain Lal Mandir is situated opposite the Red Fort in Delhi. Dating back to the rule of the Mughal Emperor Aurangzeb, it is considered as the oldest temple of the city. Originally, Delhi Shri Digambar Jain Lal Mandir was built in 1658 AD. However, since that time numerous modifications, renovations and reconstructions have been carried on in this temple. Standing amidst the noisy and chaotic main street of Chandni Chowk, Shree Digambar Jain Lal Mandir of Delhi presents a picture of serenity. The sanctum sanctorum is dedicated to Lord Parshvanath, the twenty-third Jain tirthankara. The halls surrounding the main shrine are adorned with meticulous carvings, and pretty paintwork.

One of the unique features of the temple is a medical center for birds situated inside the temple premises. Known as the Birds' Charity Hospital, this center is based on Lord Mahavira's message of - 'Live and let Live'. Jain merchants bring partridges, trapped and injured by fowlers, to this place, which serves as a rescue sanctuary also. The hospital has separate wards for pigeons, parrots, sparrows and domestic fowl. The birds of prey are also treated here, but on a strictly outpatient basis. Once the birds get better and recover, they are released into the open sky to lead a free life again.
