Hauntingly beautiful-The Jain Temple of Mehrauli,Delhi

Tucked away in one of the by lanes of Mehrauli, Delhi is one of the most beautiful Jain temples in this part of the country.

Legends say, the temple is devoted to a monk who lived in Delhi around 900 years ago.

Though, the temple is of recent construction, the beauty is to be seen to believe it.

The story goes that the monk was born with a gem embedded in his forehead and hence was called  Manibhadra by his followers .

Posting a few pics for my friends below
