Kanch Mandir, Indore

Kanch Mandir, Indore in Indore

The Kanch Mandir, as the name suggests, is a temple which is entirely made up of glass and mirrors. It is primarily a Jain temple and is a wonder in glass. The walls, ceiling, floor, pillars, doors, everything here is entirely adorned with glass.

The charisma of the temple is further intensified with the delicately crafted Chinese lantern-type glass lamps and cut glass chandeliers. The interiors of the Kanch Mandir are just mesmerizing. The temple boasts of more than 50 murals depicting Jain stories. They also depict scenes of conversion to Jainism, torture of sinners in the afterlife and 19th century court life. The Kanch Mahal is quite different from all the other such monuments in the country.

"This temple is a true jewel. Unfortunately, although the owners are finding its upkeep a challenge, do not miss a visit and plan a few hours of craning your neck as you try to absorb the work on the ceiling as well."
