Sri Chandaprabhu Temple, Kolkata


Sri Chandaprabhu Swami Temple

There is another temple in the complex near Parasnath. This is of Sri Chandraprabh Swami, eighth Jain Tirthankar.

This is also very beautiful temple built by Ganeshilal Kapurchand Kharad, another esteemed member of Johari Sath, Kolkata.

Ganeshilal Kapurchand Kharad Johari were mainly in ruby and sapphires business. They were manufacturing and exporting these precious stones from Burma, Shyam, Pylin and Cylon rough. They accumulated wealth out of this business and spent generously to build the temple. The temple is built some years after Rai Badridas built Parasnath glass temple of Sri Sheetal Nath.
