Currently, the temple is going under the restoration. It is located in the middle of the city, near Delhi Darwaja, with a very small inconspicuous entry, but once inside its a small replica of The stone works in Dilwara Temple of Mt Abu of Rajasthan, and also a replica of the Victory Tower of Chittorgarh of Rajasthan, two in one in the middle of Ahmedabad. Intricate work on pillars, textured patterns on windows and domes are worth looking at.
