Gavin Thomas, in his book, "The Rough Guide to Rajasthan, Delhi & Agra" (2010, p. 257), writes on Nareli Jain Temple:
- "There's another striking monument to the Jain faith some 7km southeast of Ajmer on the Jaipur bypass, the angular modern Nareli Temple, a striking edifice mixing traditional and contemporary architectural styles to somewhat quirky effect, with 23 further miniature temples lined up on the hill above."
The other Jain temple that the author talks about is the Ajmer Jain Temple.
Ashok Patni of RK Marbles constructed this temple. The temple is situated on the Aravali mountain range. The temple was estimated to cost around Rupees 50 crore, but ended up costing close to Rupees 100 crore.
It lies on the main national highway no. 8 which is a 6 lane expressway from Jaipur onwards and connects the Delhi-Ajmer-Mumbai. Autos and taxis are available from Ajmer and nearby towns.
Nearest railway station is Ajmer junction which is an important railway junction with Broad gauge lines.
Presently the nearest airport is the Jaipur International Airport, about 125 km away, with daily flights to the major cities in India and certain international flights.
