Appreciate an impressive metal statue in a white marble shrine surrounded by turquoise pools at Katraj Jain Temple, a famous Jain pilgrimage site on a hillock on the highway between Satara and Pune. This large, clean temple features a 3.6 m (12 ft) tall gilt statue of Lord Mahavira made of "panchadhatu", a traditional five-metal alloy of sacred significance, which weighs around five tons. Enjoy the exquisitely carved pillars and long corridors of this shiny, palace-like complex surrounded by greenery.

  • One the best feeling of being spiritual. That's how places of meditation and prayer should be. But it's been quite a while since the place is under construction. One should speed up the process and finish it at once. I am pretty sure finance isn't the issue here. But an amazing experience and the atmosphere is always the best.
  • Very good place with basic stay facilities and Bhojanshaala. The Jain Temple is extremely beautiful, tranquil, peaceful and calm. The best part is all the Jain Scriptures along with Artwork have been written on the Temple Walls, which was very elevating. Parking space is available outside the Temple Premises.
