Day 1

Ahinsa Sthal is a jain temple located in Mehrauli, Delhi. As a child whenever I use to pass by that road, I always use to see this statue from the road and only Buddha's head was visible. I always had this curiosity to go and visit the temple. Finally after so many years, I went and explored the space.

The temple has a beautiful and magnificent statue of Tirthankara Buddha

Buddha's statue was carved from a granite rock in the shape of a Lotus flower from bottom
