Mythological References

Modern Delhi was founded by Mughal Emperor Shah Jahan (1628 - 1658) who built what is commonly known as the old city or old Delhi, surrounded by a wall, with the main street Chandni Chowk in front of the Red Fort, the imperial residence. Jahangir invited several Jain fianciers to come and settle in the city and granted them some land south of the Chandani Chauk around Dariba Gali. He also permitted them to build a temporary structure to house a Jain temple. The Jain community acquired three marble idols installed by Jivaraj Papriwal under the supervision of Bhattaraka Jinachandra in Samvat 1548 (1491 AD) for the temple. The main idol is that of Tirthankara Parshva. It is said that the deities in temple were originally kept in a tent belonging to a Jain officer of the Mughal army.


During the Mughal period, the construction of a sikhara for a temple was not permitted. This temple did not have a formal sikhara until after India's independence when the temple was extensively rebuilt. In 1800-1807, Raja Harsukh Rai, the imperial treasurer obtained imperial permission to build a temple with a sikhara in the Jain neighborhood of Dharamapura, just south of Chandani Chauk. Thus temple, known for fine carvings, is now known as the Naya Mandir "New Temple". The Gauri Shankar temple next to the Lal Mandir, was founded about a century later in 1761 by Appa Gangadhara, a Maratha Brahman in the service of the Scindia when Delhi was under their influence. It also has been significantly rebuilt in the past few decades.
