A Night in a Temple

I spent a night in a Jain temple in Mehrauli. A colleague suggested this as a possible alternative to staying at some random hotel. Given that all I need to do is to sleep, I figured that this could be an interesting option. And so it was. Temples are a nice place to walk, pray and so some reflection – undisturbed and cocooned from the world outside.

The Jain temple in Dada Badi is built on quite  a large land area, and has excellent rooms as part of the dharamshala. I reached quite late at night, and left early morning, but that was enough to soak in the tranquility of the place.

  1. I liked this twitter-esque blog. As a potential visitor to Delhi after 30 years, I would have liked to find some helpful tips, such as: can i find any one at the gate to let me in the temple, who to contact for a room, whether I need to take my own bedroll, etc. Any way, the information itself is helpful, albeit partially.

  2. And oh! forgot the last point: Do I have to be a Jain to find a room in this temple? Thanks, Rajesh.
