Antwerp Derasar



A lovely building that is full of character with lots of detail and there are ever helpful volunteers at hand to offer explanations to anyone who is interested;very peaceful and and a good place in Leicester to rest tired legs and feed the mind.

Manu“A haven of spirituality”

This place is very peaceful. I would say it was a perfect stress release experience for me. Knowing the spiritual basic of this religion motivated me a lot on ways of living life. Interior is enormously beautiful. There is free entry. I would definitely visit next time whenever I am around this place.

Mike“Wonderful experience”

This is a beautiful, interesting building, it is like another world when you go inside. We weren’t sure about going into such a place as we aren’t religious, but we were made to feel welcome and the displays gave us a real insight into Jainism. Don’t miss this if you are in the area, it is free to go in…

Lin“A must see if visiting Leicester”

Situated on the Inner Circle Road, entering the Jain Centre, one enters a different world. The Temple is beautifully designed in traditional style – a very peaceful place of Indian (Jain) spirituality. Very interesting to watch the worshippers. We were warmly welcomed and appreciated the explanations spontaneously offered.
