Kanch Mandir
 

Situated on Jawahar Road near Rajwada, Kanch Mandir also known as Hukamchand Temple is a Jain Temple built by the "Cotton King" Sir Hukamchand in the early 20th century. As the name suggests, the entire temple is made up of coloured glasses (Kaanch) and paintings. The interiors are decorated with elaborate mirror work and the walls, ceilings, floor, pillars and doors are all adorned with various patterns of glass like Chinese Lantern Type Colored Glass and  Cut Glass Chandeliers. The use of glass beads and raised figures produces a pleasing 3-D effect. The paintings are done in coloured glass which depict stories from Jain scriptures. The temple is opened from 10.00 am.
