Kanch Mandir, Indore

Religious Site · Tourist Spot
Wander around the unusual temple of Kanch Mandir. Built by prominent trader Sir Seth Hukumchand in the early 20th century, the structure's facade resembles a medieval mansion house. Step inside to discover walls, floors, and ceilings covered with glass panels and mosaics, to dazzling effect. You'll have to commit it all to memory, however, since photography is technically prohibited within the temple's glass walls. Add Kanch Mandir and other attractions to your Indore trip itinerary using our Indore itinerary builder tool.

  • Millions of glass pieces. Unimaginable how all the pieces have bern together to build Kanch Mahal. Take time to observe the intricate designs right from the point you enter. It’s breathtaking, and...  more »
  • Very nice experience although the mirrors are showing signs of aging. Located in the old part of Indore it takes the visitors two centuries back.  more »

  • The entire temple is made up of glass imported from Belgium. The temple is 120 years old and was made single handedly by one person. The premises has a Digamber Jain Statue in the centre of this temple. Intricate designs are all over this temple. Photography is prohibited inside the campus. It is neatly maintained. Shoes have to be removed outside the temple for a rate of Rs.2 for every pair kept. Bag & other belongings have to be kept outside the temple which is chargeable again.
  • Beautiful temple right at the heart of the market. Made entirely with beautiful glasswork. Is a pleasure to witness. Just make sure you avoid visiting in evening as traffic will be crazy around the temple area ( located close to one of the oldest n busiest local markets in Indore )
