Next day morning from I started towards MOODBIDRI, the Jain headquarters of Karnataka.
Hardly it takes half an hour to reach Moodbidri from karkalla. Plenty of private buses available.
All the beauty of the place lies in the 1000 pillared temple. So lovely. So great. After reaching the Bus stand at Moodbidri I saw the tourism notice board telling about the 18 Jain Temples in Moodbidri.
The prime Jain Basadis ( temple ) are the 1000 pillared temple, and the GURU Basadi.
The auto guy took only Rs 12/- for going to 1000 pillared temple.
There were hardly few tourists/pilgrims there.
I enjoyed each and every pillar.
They temple staff were two in number.
One boy was having the donation book.
Donation is not compulsory.
I have taken wonderful photos on the temple. Please go through it.
I have never seen such ornamented pillars in a jain structure.
Next I slowly watched to the Jain road.
There are around 15 jain temples in the same road. Most of the temples are closed. May be scarcity of Jain priests. When I reached the GURU Basadi, nobody was there. I just had a look of the main moorthi.
It was lovely visit.
Next I proceeded towards Venur.
