A jewel of Sanganer, the foundation of Shri Digamber Jain Atishay Kshetra Mandir Sanghi Jee dates back to over 1100 years. The architectural style of the temple reflects that of the Mount Abu Dilwara Temple, while the eight crests of the temple resemble Khajuraho (famous temple in Madhya Pradesh). The courtyard at the first gate is made from Pylons of red stone, while the pillars have exquisite carvings of Kinnera Devis (Musician Goddesses). The courtyard at the second gate depicts the Dhola Maru image from the 8th and 10th Centuries.
The Nij Mandir (inner temple) has three crests etched with flowers and elephants, and an idol of Lord Parshwanath placed in between. One would find such mystic idols, the oldest being the idol of Lord Adinath, enshrined in one of the three small temples around the courtyards. The main highlight of the seven-story Sanghiji temple is the underground section where carefully restored Jain statues and idols lie beneath.
Entry is permissible only to ascetic saints who fix an auspicious date for the idols to be taken out for darshan (prayers). Religious Jain devotees and tourists from all over the world come to witness this spectacular occasion. With an aim to serve the community, the temple committees also have started a dharmashala (lodging), bhojanalaya (kitchen), school and hospital. Overall, the splendid temple is an educational subject for architecture students, and most of all, an evidence of rich history and culture yet to be unfolded.
