Built around the 1850 A.D., Hathisingh Jain Temple is a white marbled sleek structure, commonly known as Jain Temple. A wealthy trader from Ahmadabad, Sheth Hutheesing Kesrising planned to construct this temple.

With each memorial depicting structural designs and intricate features that indicate musicians and symbols related to Dharmanath, it is among the most famous and beautiful Jain Shrines in the country, which encompass the representation of Tirthankara. On the front deck of the temple you can see a dome, which gives this splendid architecture a picture perfect appeal. The temple trust supports various dance forms, tribal artists and painters and provides them a platform to maintain the legacy of its culture through their art.
