Pareshnath Jain Temple is a temple complex dedicated to four Jain Teerthankaras. The complex is a beautiful arrangement of these shrines and draws tourists from all over the world. The architecture of the temples consists of intricately carved marbles and glass work and is indeed one of the few temples that have a charismatic vibe. The complex expands over a vast piece of land and is mostly visited by followers of Jainism. The temple complex also houses extremely well-maintained gardens and fountains. Many visitors claim it is not just a religious retreat but also a recreational one because of its architecture.
Pareshwanath Temple complex houses a shop where tourists can purchase souvenirs and gifts. One may choose to offer prayers or pay respect to the Tirthankaras in all the temples. Devotees and the temple management ensure complete silence is maintained and that helps devotees enter a quiet and peaceful zone to meditate. The temples are often crowded in the evenings when visitors come to enjoy the vibe, offer their prayers and feed the birds in the garden area. This is one of the attractions that must not be missed when exploring Kolkata.
