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.

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.

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…

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.

Jon visited the Jain Centre in Leicester on the fifth day of Navapad Oli festival to learn more about the Jain community and culture. The visit was organised by Mrs Usha Mehta, the President of the Jain Centre, and lead by Dr Ramesh L Mehta, a fundraiser at the Jain Centre. During the visit the nine-day Navapad Oli, a period of semi-fasting when Jains take only one meal a day of very plain food, was explained and discussed with Jon. Jon had an opportunity to meet and greet local Jain Community members, learn about the Temple and have an informative tour of the Centre.
