2012 Karuna's Mewar Tour

An old man came near to us and asked if we want to visit an old Jain temple. Sure! So he surprisingly led us to an unimposing building in front of Andheri Ori, surrounded by many other houses.

I was impressed by the temple’s beauty and its fine marble carvings. Nothing indicated its specialty. If the old man had not directed our attention to the temple, maybe we might have left Kelwa without noticing it and without knowing what we had missed. So I recommend to visitors of Andheri Ori not to miss the occasion and give some attention to the beautiful temple.
