Went to the Jain temple of Siddhanchal today. Quite a beautiful serene place though low key and surprisingly plain. It is far from here about 60 miles. It was raining so the drive was both pretty and a bit too long.

The temple serves free food for which almost everyone pays. The food is fresh and good in very traditional Indian style and the cook is right there to answer any questions you may have.

This temple comes as a contract to the Balaji temple in Bridgewater which is bold and big and boastful of its multi-deity collection. It is also very crowded and less peaceful.
