Jain Temple
Back To Wayanad

Jain Temple at Sultan Bathery is assumed to have been constructed in the 13th century AD. The temple is situated in the heart of Bathery town and confirms the presence of Jainism in the region during ancient times. This heritage was taken over by Tipu Sultan to hide during the war period.  At present, the Archaeological Survey of India looks after the monument considering its historical prominence. The temple built in the Vijayanagar style of construction is attractive with the huge granite pillars with carvings.

The attractions of the temple include the Namaskara Mandapa, Mukha Mandapa, and Maha Mandapa with small idols of Jain Tirthankaras. Among Wayanad’s best places, the temple holds a special place.
