Babu Amichand Panalal Adishwarji Jain Temple

Jainism is an Indian religion that prizes peacefulness and non- violence above all.

Jainism is a non-theistic religion founded in India in the 6th century BC by the Jina Vardhamana Mahavira as a reaction against the teachings of orthodox Brahmanism, and still practised there. The Jain religion teaches salvation by perfection through successive lives, and non-injury to living creatures, and is noted for its ascetics.

Jain Temple Mumbai, also known as Babu Amichand Panalal Adishwarji Jain Temple, is a popular place of religious significance. Located in Walkeshwar area, this shrine is dedicated to Adishwara – the founder of Jainism. It was built more than 100 years ago in 1904 and is larger than most of the Jain temples in the city. Within the temple complex, there is a small shrine dedicated to Shri Ghantakaran Mahavir (Jain deity).

Red Light Area

A drive through one of the main red light streets. Not many girls were out tonight. In fact it looked just like a normal busy suburban city street with shops and side walk traders.

Plenty of places to eat around the hotel and I chose Pizza Express and their Romana Formaggi 670 rupees / NZ$14.10 / US$10.40. Thick crusted cheesy pizza with mozzarella buffalo mozzarella and emilgrana topped with shaved emilgrana to be cheesier.

Add the Kingfisher 295 rupees/ NZ$6.20 / US$4.60 the total came to 1,114.59 rupees / NZ$23.50 / US$17.30. Round up for the tip and it became 1,200 rupee / NZ$25.00 / US$18.50.
