Hatheesing temple
 

The Hatheesing temple is located outside the Delhi Gate to the north of the old city at a distance of three kilometres from Ahmedabad Railway station. Built in 1848 by Sri Kesarsing Hatheesing and made of white marble, this temple is dedicated to Dharmnath, the 15th Jain Tirthankara (teacher). The main temple is surrounded by 52 small temples. It has been named after its founder Seth Hathee Singh, a prosperous Jain merchant. The temple is a double storied construction with a dome on the front side while the sides are embellished with lavishly carved out balconies. The temple has a cemented courtyard that is enclosed by row of cloisters. The 52 shrines surrounding the main temple have an image each of a Tirthankara.
