Sambhavnath Derasar

Remarkable for its unique architectural design, Sambhavnath Derasar is considered as one of the oldest Derasars of the city built before samvat 1660. Unlike other Jain Derasars, this Derasar located in Sambhavnath ni Khetarpal Ni Pole, allow devotees to have a glimpse of the main Deity Lord Sambhavnath through a window placed in the dome structure. The exquisitely carved parikar around the idol of deity Dharmdev, the fifteenth Jain Tirthankar has also grabbed attention of art and sculptor lovers. It is believed that more than Rs. 1 lac was spent on the construction of this ancient Derasar which uniquely highlights sculptures of Gods, Goddesses, nine planets as well as figures of animals.
