Dimapur Jain Temple. Nestled in the heart of Nagaland's bustling city of Dimapur, the Dimapur Jain Temple stands as a serene sanctuary of spirituality and history. Established in 1947, this temple is not just a place of worship but a testament to the resilience and dedication of the Jain community in the region.

The temple's origins trace back to the pre-independence era when the first Jain settlers in Nagaland built a temple in Kohima. However, due to the turmoil of World War II, these families moved to Dimapur and established what we now know as the Dimapur Jain Temple. This relocation and subsequent construction of the temple, school, and charitable hospital were spearheaded by prominent figures like Shri Phulchand Sethi and Shri Jethmal Sethi, among others.

Architecturally, the temple is a marvel with intricate glasswork and a well-designed structure that houses the idols of Lord Mahavira, Lord Bahubali, and other Tirthankaras. The temple complex also includes the Samavsaran and the Chaubisi, showcasing the idols of all twenty-four Tirthankaras of the Jain religion.
