About Us:

We are located in New York City. We are a registered non-profit charity organization that encourages the discussion and exploration of Jain philosophy, spirituality and its practical importance to life, in an open and friendly environment.

The Jain Center of America was established through the hard work of Jain immigrant families from India living in the New York area. The center was inaugurated with the idol sthapana ceremony (establishing of the shrine) in 1981. The Jain Center of America was one of the first Jain temple in North America.

We believe in Truth and Non-Violence.

  • The JCA NY Temple complex is a 16,625 square feet facility, with four stories and a cellar.
