Jain Gods of America – A Photo Tour

Just as night follows day, you can be sure where there are Indians temples will surely follow.

Even if it be America.

There are 100 Jain temples in the U.S. (source: Wiki).

We’re inclined to believe that of the countless faiths and religions in the world Jainism and Buddhism inflict the least harm on society.

Of the scores of Jain temples in the U.S., SI has visited one exclusive Jain temple and a bunch of Hindu Jain temples over the years.

Here is a photo tour of some Jain Gods from Jain temples as well as Hindu-Jain temples in America:
