Cross the Daddho ka Chowk to where the street ends at a T-junction, then turn right and continue for around 400m to reach Barah Bazaar, centred on a large pillar painted in the colours of the Indian flag. Follow the street round to the left and you’ll eventually reach the Bhandreshwar (Bhandasar) Temple, unusual among Jain temples in being covered in a rich, almost gaudy, array of paintings. Porcelain tiles imported from Victorian England decorate the main altar, and steps lead up the unusually large tower, where you get a great view over the old city.
