The most distinctive and unique feature of the JCSF Temple is the manner in which it has managed to unite the diverse traditions of the Jain faith under one building, with each tradition having their own worshipping space, to preserve their unique tradition and identity, in order to foster greater harmony and unity among all its members.

We request you to support this tradition of festival celebrations to foster and teach the preaching of Bhagwan Mahavir.

Religious education is important because it equips students with cultural, social, moral and spiritual knowledge that aids in mental and physical development within society.

We request you to support this cause for benefit of our future generations.
