Jain Temple



Fig. 51: JAIN TEMPLE, photograph by Felice Beato, 1858. The Sri Digambar Jain Naya Mandir has been rebuilt many times, but this beautiful doorway to it is dated to 1807. It is situated between Chandni Chowk and the Jama Masjid. This piece of land in Delhi was given apparently to the Jain community by the Emperor Aurangzeb for their services as bankers to the Mughal courts. Victoria and Albert Museum, London, 80-119.

The Mughal Images immediately took a much greater interest in realistic portraiture than was typical of Persian miniatures. Animals and plants were the main subject of many miniatures for albums and were more realistically depicted. To upload your images click here.
