Jain Temple, Jainimedu

#Jain Temple in Palakkad

One of the few places in Kerala where Jainism still prospers is the Jainimedu Jain Temple in Jainimedu. The temple portrays the facets of Jain culture and traditional aspects. Located along the wet hillside slopes of Palakkad, it is believed that the temple was built by a family of diamond traders 500 years back.

Built on a vast expanse of land, it exhibits a fine example of Kerala architecture. The temple has long granite walls displaying pictures and carvings of Jain spiritualism. The monument has images of Jain Thirthankaras, giving a vibrant backdrop. An interesting feature is the Jain House next to the temple, where the famous poet Kumaranashan composed the poem Veenapoovu or the 'fallen flower'. One of the rarest temples of Kerala, it is solely dedicated to Jainism.
