About Vishal Jain Museum, Palitana

History

At the foot of Shatrunjaya, this museum houses an excellent collection of artifacts, excavated idols from earlier temples, ancient manuscripts written on palm leaves, and an exhibit on the history of Jainism and the life of Lord Mahavira. Most of the accompanying information is in Gujarati, though some is in Hindi and occasionally English. Entry is Rs. 6

Famous for

This museum features some remarkable – if randomly displayed – exhibits of Jain artwork and artifacts up to 500 years old. In the basement is a surprising circular temple with mirror walls and centuries-old images of four tirthankars (great Jain teachers). It’s 500m down the street from the foot of the Shatrunjaya steps.

The museum has a good collection of antique items, which depicts the glory of Jainism. No photo inside and outside museum. The museum explains early history of Jainism and stories related to it.
